I am back! I am nearly over a bout of suspected influenza A H1N1 (okay, SWINE FLU!), the countenance of which I’d compare to an uninvited houseguest who shows up out of nowhere and proceeds to essentially wreck your whole state-of-being, while taking its sweet time to just get back out the door, already. And I am still tired and trying to learn to eat again, but I am ready to write!
It looks like our poll results favor last August’s Lake Martin, Alabama, trip, which is still quite
fresh in my mind 🙂 After that, I’ll head to the next popular result (unless I take a trip in the meantime). To tide you over until my next chronicle, here are some photographs from my last topic — lovely King George County, Virginia!
What you’ll see as you drive down Route 3 to get to King George … green, green, and more green. And, I really need to turn off that annoying datestamp on my camera.
We met this green garden snake on the Dahlgren Railroad Heritage Trail, which is a nearly 16 mile trail following the path of the original Dahlgren Branch railroad line.
He was not particularly agreeable to being a model and took off in this bush to sun himself.
Of course, that didn’t stop my sister and me from petting him anyway. We’re COUNTRY, y’all! Ha ha ha. My sister is probably going to kill me for making such an assertion about her 🙂 But I didn’t realize how country we really were until I moved to the city. Where else can you get a gorgeous view, like this one?
Walk just a little farther, and you can complete the picture with a farmhouse in the distance. I wish I could just run straight through the fields and up the hill, a la Laura Ingalls in On the Banks of Plum Creek.
