Scenic Overlook

Alleghany County...near Falling Spring
"Through the gap between Peters Mountain on the left and Lick Mountain lies the road to the Kanawha used by emigrants traveling west to the Mississippi basin. The road in the valley below follows the route Washington used when inspecting the forts along the Jackson River in 1756."

Now that's a view!

Today I am thankful to be officially starting my first day of summer vacation! The boys last day of school was on Tuesday but I had to go in for a few hours and clean yesterday...then grocery shop, run the boys and a friend around house looks like a bomb went off...I am also thankful to have a whole, mostly uninterrupted day to clean haha...and perhaps a little bit of blogging of course! Linking up with Michelles Thankful Thursday & Signs, Signs for the first time in ages! Have a great day :)

Meet Walter...Walter was one of the sweetest guests at The Homestead that we met...Walter is watching his owner in the coffee well behaved Walter is!

I'm taking a tiny break until Wednesday...I'm just so swamped with running here, running gets out on Tuesday and so things shall slow down a bit, I hope! See you on Wednesday, behave but have fun!

The Great Gatsby

Entrance to The Homestead . Bath County

On Friday Nick had a Rotary Club dinner at The Homestead so he booked a room for us to stay the night...what a gorgeous old hotel...anyways, this little road leads into the hotel and we were behind this old car...I thought the whole scene was very Gatsby-esque! When we were checking in we found out that there was also a Bentley convention going on...that explained all the beautiful old cars!

The Phoenix

The Phoenix . 813 5th St SW . Roanoke . 24016

This mural of a Phoenix is painted on the Phoenix building by Scott "Toobz" Noel...I've shown you more of his work HERE ...The Phoenix is a music venue.

In other news...who else is tired of being cold? This has been a COLD last few days. Spent a freezing day at a track meet on Saturday with such strong winds that made it so much worse...I thought we were just about done with the cold but now we have rain and low 60's for the whole :( Monday's are so much better when they aren't cold!
