A Sunday Drive

Sunday, Motor Man and I took advantage of a pretty day to go for an afternoon drive to the neighboring county of Surry. The temps were still chilly, but the sky was a gorgeous blue with fluffy white clouds: the kind of day that’s made for taking pictures.

We “sorta” had something in mind that we were in search of, but never actually found it. We did end up on roads that just may have been previously untraveled by either of us.

But, after all these years, we still enjoy spending time with each other, so it was a fun drive.

As we passed through one tiny village, we noticed a few riders and horses at a small, newly opened drive ride-up “restaurant”. Motor Man immediately pulled into the parking lot, knowing that I would want to take pictures.

I think the riders were a bit leery of a stranger coming up and asking permission to take photos of their horses, but they agreed. It so happened that one of the women and I have mutual friends.

This was my favorite picture of the day.

I submitted that to our local paper, and they must have liked it, too; it was featured in yesterday’s edition.

You just never know what you’ll happen upon on a Sunday drive.

Barn Charm – Sweet

Motor Man and I were out for a Sunday drive a few weeks ago, as old mature folks will sometimes do. While out on our drive, we spotted this simple old barn. Something about the shape of the barn, those mis-matched windows and that door remind me of a sweet little comical face. Do you see it?

Sure wish I could move that utility pole. I probably could have photo-edited it out of the picture, but I think it would have been noticeable. And, after all, as unsightly as it might be, it IS part of the scenery.

Here’s a side view. No utility pole! I love the lightning rods.

And a look down the driveway from the road.

Barn Charm – Sunday Drive

Sunday was a beautiful day, and Motor Man and I took advantage of it to go “barn storming”.  Our drive took us through three counties.

You fellow Barn Charmers can probably imagine the “oohs” and “aahs” Motor Man heard from me when we first spotted this one.
