FALL ACROSS THE BLUE RIDGE

As they started up our driveway,
Dad started telling Mom
that he brought along the camera
just in case
they happened upon
a grand and glorious photo.


About that time,
he raised his head
and saw all of these buzzards
sitting atop of our fence post.


After they allowed Dad to
take a few snapshots,
they decided to take flight.


One lone one decided
to do a "totem pole" dance for him.


The rest of the day
was spent exploring
the gorgeous countryside.


They never got more than
25 miles from home.


It just seemed like a great little staycation.


Farmers markets


Buckwheat cakes with gravy


Little whittled animals


Ghostly pumpkins


We're not sure what this is -
it could be Virginia Creeper.


Apple crates
waiting to be filled.


Apple trees
that had already been picked.


And the day ended with a glass
of
Foggy Ridge Apple Cider.

We hope you had a great weekend.

XOXO
The Rocky Creek Scotties and Ivy
