I'm breaking the trip into three posts...don't want to overload you with everything at once.
Each post will be different...so something for everyone.
Part 1 shows scenic/nature things...
...here's one photo, obviously shot through the bug covered windshield at 70 mph, but you still can see how lovely the drive is...no city traffic or billboards...
I think this spot is just before we ran over that BIG furry animal in the road... not kidding. It was so scary, because with cars on our left and behind us, we had no place to go...we are just thankful we didn't have an accident.
This is near Fancy Gap...love that name.
Next three photos are in NJ...
...this is our son's neighbor's house. See the wreath hanging on the lamp post?
Can you see her? Not the neighbor...the bird... :)
The wreath had been on the neighbor's front door. The bird had made a nest and laid one egg, and kept freaking out every time anyone went in and out the door...so, they moved the wreath to the lamp post..
...after the wreath was moved, she laid two more eggs.
I just have a few more photos to show you, so hang in there.
Remember the rest area landscaping post I did last year?
Well, we went to NJ a month earlier this year, so there wasn't much in bloom but, I did find a few things to show you...
A little court yard at a rest stop in Virginia.
This is in North Carolina...
I think these are white rhododendrons...someone correct me if I got that wrong.
All right...rest stop break is over!
Everybody back in the car. We're on our way to Atlantic City for pizza!
Glad to be back.
