Day Ten: Laurel to Salisbury

Today we got up early (well, for a vacation!) and were on the road by 6:40. Our intention was to be south of DC before the rush hour, and for all practical purposes we were: the northbound side of 95 was packed and slow, but we were heading south and it was running at speed. We stopped for lunch in Henderson and cruised on into Salisbury by 2:30, 370 miles in an easy drive.

My West Coast friend meets the South. She ordered iced tea and reflexively dumped two packets of sweetener in it ... in North Carolina!
