Virginia’s Blue Ridge In The Fall

Motor Man and I took a day trip to the Virginia mountains last week. I can’t say that we hit the fall foliage at the very peak, but it was still a beautiful ride.

It’s easy to see why the name “Blue Ridge”.

This wonderful little antique shop was one of our stops.  The name is Old Raggedy Ann Antiques, and it’s located in an old country store in the map-dot of Etlan, Va. Wouldn’t it be nice if all old buildings could be given a second life like this?

Please pardon the blurred fence (another 55 mph capture), but this scene was too pretty not to share.

During a stop at a scenic overlook, we noticed another couple attempting to take a selfie. We asked if they’d take a picture of us, since we’ve never had much success with selfies.  As it turns out, they felt the same way, so we returned the favor.

Another wonderful day trip in the books.
