“L.O.V.E.” Letters

You may recall the trip Motor Man and I made to the Daffodil Festival in Gloucester, Va. with Motor Mum a couple of months ago. While there, we had our picture taken at the Virginia Is For Lovers “L.O.V.E.” exhibit.

Then, last month, when we were on the Eastern Shore, we found this “L.O.V.E.” exhibit at Kiptopeke State Park.  Adirondacks are a favorite of mine; my dad used to make them for family members.

Well, earlier this week, we were at Richmond International Raceway for a tribute to our good friend, Junie Donlavey, who passed away last week. As we turned into the race track, we spotted the perfect (for us) “L.O.V.E.” exhibit:

The “L” is made up of racing tires, the “O” resembles a checkered flag, the “V” is formed from drivers’ helmets, and the “E” is sheet metal from race cars. Alas, we didn’t have our tripod, and there was no one in that area of the parking lot to take a picture of us together.

There are “L.O.V.E.” exhibits that travel to festivals around the state, and thirty stationary ones. Motor Man, we’d better hit the road: that’s a lot of “L.O.V.E.” to see!
