This weekend I was piddling around with photos, making sure I have them labeled and burned onto CDs, and updating my database. I ran across some from a trip I made to Floyd, VA back in October of last year and realized I had not shared them with you here.
I didn't camp with the Sisters that weekend and was only around for Wednesday and Thursday of the gathering. Sue had posted that the campground was full, so I opted to stay over in Floyd, explore the area, and meet up with the Sisters at Daddy Rabbit's Campground for some visiting and supper.
First I'll share two photo collages from the campground...
Sometimes when I travel or camp, I don't mind going by myself because it frees me up to explore, make U-turns, and stop at places that might not interest my traveling companions. That's the kind of trip this turned out to be. I headed off in a general direction both Wednesday and Thursday without really having a destination in mind, knowing full well that Jill the GPS would get me back to where I really needed to be.
I found a couple neat coffee houses, two covered bridges, an old courthouse, an incredible fabric shop, some Buffalo China at a dilapidated antique shop, fresh apples at a mountain farmer's market, and some breath-taking fall color at Lover's Leap Overlook.
I took the long way home Friday morning, stopping by one of my favorite places along the Blue Ridge Parkway...Mabry Mill. The scenery was incredible along the Parkway as I drove towards home. This will have to go down as one of my favorite trips of 2011!
