Leesburg meets Bisbee

Golf Course View with history
Sharon and I had a sweet visit with my Aunt Juanita and her husband Tom but soon it was time to hit the road northwest to Leesburg two hours away where we will spend a couple days with Sharon's brother Greg. Leesburg, about 50 miles northeast of Washington DC, is steeped with early Americana history and Greg is a trove of information regarding the early happenings of his area. The gated country club community is built at the confluence of the Potomac River and Cripple Creek.

When we visit relatives we like spending family time and not using their houses as a hotel so for the two days we walked, biked, and bowled (yes bowl) with Greg and his son Hayden. It was great to feel at home for bit but the last night we went to dinner at Clydes, a legendary restauranteur that disassembled two large barns and reassembled them to be used as the dining experience along with a collection of horse drawn carriages hung from the ceiling.

Thailand, Greece, and now Leesburg are locations we've run into Bisbeeites. Ken Wallace just happened to be in Leesburg so we invited him to dinner with us at Clydes. The dinners were good but the deserts were the bomb and it was fun to see Ken outside of the Brothel. We said our goodbyes to Ken later that evening knowing we needed to get some sleep for our trip to Pittsburgh the next day.
