An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 28 September 2010
Cuz I missed it, posting tonight.
….insert name of Virginia town here. Heh. This time, it’s New Market. Haven’t seen anything all that “historic”, unless you count the squished roads. Sheesh! Just getting off the freeway was a task and a half.
Anyway, I had every intent of playing tourist on this leg of my trip, get some shots of scenery and stuff. Pfft! The only thing I managed to do was get lost, buy a pair a sneakers and some socks (my feet were FREEZING) and take a picture of a horse’s hind end. Don’t ask. It’s not that there was some seriously beautiful scenery, old HUGE houses and such, it’s just that there was no way to pull off the road when I wanted to ‘make a memory’.
So, here I am, ensconced in another motel, and it’s too dark to wander around. Did get a picture of an old shed. Does that count?
I don’t know why, but I’ve always had a thing for old abandoned buildings like that. Old barns, and such. Perhaps it’s the families and their histories I think of when I see such places.
Since I’m pretty close to my final destination, I think I’m going to take Skyline Drive for a while. At least there are things to actually look a besides the hind end of a semi!
But hey….at least it’s not pouring down, and I should be able to at least see when I continue my journey shortly.
AFTER another cup of coffee, of course!
Under no circumstance should the so called ‘powers that be’ cross WE, The People! Especially our own Paula Tyler, Smart Girl extraordinaire!
