It’s a Beautiful Day in Manassas


Well, we hit the road (actually the sky) yesterday, and are here in Manassas for a few days of editorial research. I’m focusing on the historical attractions in the area, with a heavy emphasis on military history. I’ve also found a few nice accessible trails in the area that I’d like to explore.

The good news is, there are a lot of accessible choices and the weather looks great.

I’d also like to add a special thanks to the innkeepers (Barbara & Jim) at Apple’s B&B in Big Bear Lake, CA. We stayed at their property last week while doing some editorial research on the other coast. They served some huge breakfasts, so much so that they gave us doggie bags. Well, they came in handy yesterday. You see, by the time we arrived at our hotel, all the food outlets were closed. Luckily, Charles had a muffin, left over from his doggie bag, in his camera bag. He was nice enough to share it with me, so that was our dinner.

Apples B&B is a great property, and I will be writing in detail about their access in the next issue of Emerging Horizons. I’ll also be covering some great trails and recreational opportunities in Big Bear Lake; including the most accessible places to spot bald eagles in the winter.

But for now, it’s off to breakfast. That muffin is wearing pretty thin.
