A friend and I drove to the Blue Ridge Parkway today. It was a nice day - quite sunny, hot, dry, and peaceful. We packed a healthy picnic lunch and ate in a large picnic area. We could hear the birds chirping and watched a deer come through close to where we were eating and then bounded away into the brush on the opposite side.
We went to Mabry Mill and enjoyed walking back in time.
Another stop was The Reynolds Homestead as well as a covered bridge.
It was a sunny day so none of the pictures turned out very good but it was pleasant way to spend the day with a friend.
