This week has been so interesting. I have lived in this small town for quite a number of years. And believe me, it's not big. Typical small town USA......but quaint and I truly love it here.
There are places in town I have never been yet.... like the D-Day Memorial. The Civil War Museum.
But over the years, I have visited most of the stores, the Visitors center, the parks etc..
We also have a notable haunted house here.... plus lots of history
The Avenel House.
I haven't visited inside yet....
Just a few days ago, one of my daughters told me to meet her at a park here in town. I've never heard of the park and had never been there.
On the grounds, there were several historical buildings. I assume they belonged to the farm that donated the land for the park. I found them fascinating. You couldn't go inside but I took the opportunity to do a little black and white photography.
The park itself was awesome for families. People were unloading their coolers, their bikes, their children. A huge play area. A wonderful walking trail.
Also this week, I continue to watch as spring unfolds here in Virginia.
Another Discovery I made this week was a trip to the Peaks of Otter. Those incredible mountains that I photograph so much. I hope to climb to the top this summer. But in the meantime, I have never been up there to the place where you begin and end the climb. It's beautiful there. The pictures are in black and white but I hope you get a sense of the presence of the mountains.
And to end that particular adventure, we came home via the Blue Ridge Parkway. I only got a couple of pictures ..but as always, it's so uplifting to drive along the ridge of these beautiful mountains that I call home....
As each new day unfolds, another adventure begins.
Live your life to the fullest.
Thanks for visiting. See you next week.
