Weekend Wanderings

    One of LV's cousins and his wife invited us to go on a little day trip with them. It was something they have been wanting to do for a while already, and finally on Saturday we ventured out.
    Our first stop was at a tiny church house. Proclaimed to be the smallest in 48 states. It was cute, and after spending a few minutes to look at everything, we were on our way again.

    Next we stopped at Black Water Falls. It was raining gently. We didn't have rain gear so we didn't dawdle, which meant by the time I had climbed back up the stairway of 200+ steps I was ready to collapse in a panting heap in our vehicle instead of browsing the gift shop.

    The final thing on our list for the day was driving through Dolly Sods. The narrow winding road with hairpin turns and steep drop offs was not my idea of a relaxing drive, even though the fall colors were spectacular. I spent a lot of that drive with my eyes squeezed shut trying to calm the butterflies in my stomach. I don't have pictures to share from there.
    I was glad to get back home, but I'm already looking forward to our next outing.


  1. I don't enjoy the tight corners and high drop offs of mountain roads anymore either. I'm finding that my favorite place in the world is home.

  2. Some roads are scary and I don't care for them, but I have found that with a camera in my hand, I can tolerate a lot more.

  3. I do the same thing when we travel the hour or so ride from our home to the destinations you mentioned here. :)

  4. Sorry you didn't find it relaxing, but nice you got out, and good you're looking forward to next time.

  5. I remember the Dolly Sod road. We had a van pulling a camper with a canoe on top and our son with only a permit was driving. Thankfully we made it safely, but we made memories.

  6. The Squire and I enjoy driving along crazy country roads. He grew up in Appalachia, so he's used to it; I just go along and enjoy the scenery.

    Odd coincidence. That altar rail looked familiar. It's the same as I put in the mini-church my sister and I made for our Dad's 75th birthday.

  7. I like that small church and the pretty falls. I don't like twisty road either.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment. I love hearing your thoughts.
