Where in the World am I?

12/06/13 4:27 PM

Today our handyman guys were busy sanding and paint so I decided to escape the plantation along with the dust and flumes and head out on an adventure. As most you know, when I go on an adventure, I don’t go with a plan. I just point the car and head out. Today was a particularly good adventure!

If you are following us on Twitter and Instagram, you got to see some real time photos of where I have been. But here is the fun part, I didn’t reveal where I was! So for those of you who didn’t get to play, I am going to extend the fun to you!

Below are the photos I sent out with the expectation of the last. I didn’t send that one out to anyone. Today I am going to give you a chance to figure out “Where in the World Michelle was!”

In 24 hours, I will reveal where I was.

I will extend one clue…. I was in Virginia and within a half a day’s drive from Belle Grove.

Good Luck!

  1. My kids are napping so I think “Ok, I’ll see if I can figure out where she is”. That last pic looks like grape vines in a vineyard, but that got me nowhere. Then I searched for “big brick plantation house in Virginia”, and poof! There’s a picture of the same house! Yay me. Then I clicked on it…and it’s your picture…so then I searched “big white house on the river in Virginia”. And got lots of images of the White House. So I give up. Lol.

  2. Haha… I have to say, these are going to be a little harder than normal. But I think you are going to enjoy the reveal!

    As a native Virginian, I’m ashamed of myself. They all look familiar, but I really don’t know…without cheating!

  4. Well don’t feel bad! They are hard, but the reveal will be worth it!

  5. A winery in Virginia. Could it be Oak Crest?

  6. Hmmmm… we will see.

  7. David Says:

    It seems you were there before. This is my best guess. 🙂

  8. Good guess… no cigar. The reveal is coming shortly!

  9. What fun!

  10. Thank you. And it was!
