52 dates // 26

The date // Watching the sun go down over Harper’s Ferry.
The snack // Custard, for the second time that day…

One of my very favorite places, especially in this area, is Harper’s Ferry. We try to get there at least once a year to hike Maryland Heights, wander around the colonial town, and of course, eat some custard at Swiss Miss.

On Sunday we’d planned to make it up to Maryland Heights for the sunset, but made it just part of the way there before the sun started to fade, so we stopped to enjoy the rest of the day on a big rock in the middle of the Shenandoah River, just off the C&O Canal that I still swear we’re going to through-bike, and watch the AT through-hikers, who I still swear we’re going to join…

One of these days, when we can both work on the run, which is just what we both dreamt about as we sat there watching the sun dip beneath the clouds.

P.S. We’re halfway there! The year is flying by so fast.

    Seriously, I can’t believe we’re halfway.. the year really is flying (lightning speed) This is probably one of my favorite. There’s something so calming and wonderful just being outdoors and watching the sunset with your lover. Ahh, love it!
