away for the weekend: misty autumn in langrove

misty autumn in langrove

It had been a few weeks since Greg and I were able to get to Away (for the weekend)
So - last Friday as we crossed the state line into Vermont
- it was like - deep breath - ahhhh


It had also been a while since I had picked up my camera (bad, bad)


And then - Saturday turned out to be a rainy day - and it really didn't matter
- because - you know - that breathing thing...


- and besides, I kind of like the way the autumn leaves look in the mist
- and I had forgotten how much I like telling Greg to "Stop right here!"
because - you know - it's kind of fun to take photos of cows
 (and barns and fences) in the rain :-)

So - today I am heading out of town to celebrate the life of my
sister-in-law, Beth. Heaven gained a really special person last week.

I am joining Theresa at Run*A*Round Ranch for Good Fences

Have a wonderful weekend

  16. I like that you are "celebrating the life" of your SIL instead of mourning her passing. It's hard to lose loved ones but such a joy to know they are in a better place.
    Wonderful countryside. I agree with Debbie about that 2nd photo. It was gorgeous.
