Union Street, Salem, Virginia

I’m a Yankee.  Sooner or later, I had to find myself on Union Street.

The house you see in the third and fourth photos has just GOT to be haunted.

And that giant sawed-off tree trunk would make an INCREDIBLE fortress for G.I. Joes.

Towers Shopping Center, Roanoke, Virginia

Clearly this shopping center lies along the path of The Beam.

Only Stephen King fans will get that joke.

There are at least two cool places to grab lunch there — McAlister’s Deli and Firehouse Subs.  Unless I’m mistaken, we don’t have those chains in New York.

Grandin Village, Virginia, March 2017 (2)

Grace’s Pizzeria is damn good, and inexpensive too.  You can get a small pizza with two toppings for just under $10.  It’s occasionally extra greasy, though.  (At one point, I tilted the pie sideways and it started just sliding off.)
