Virginia (the person) has been mostly offline this week. She and her brother Dwight have enjoyed a busy “staycation” day-tripping from home to nearby places in Virginia (the state.)
On Monday we enjoyed a lovely outing to the charming town of Smithfield, Virginia – about an hour’s drive from Williamsburg via the Jamestown Scotland Ferry. After traipsing around the town, we ventured out for a walk in Windsor Castle Park.
Our walk got off to a good start with this sighting…
“Who could refrain that had a heart to love and in that heart courage to make love known?” William Shakespeare
We saw these egrets “social distancing” across the water as we social distanced ourselves from other walkers. (It’s a big park, not hard to give everyone lots of space!)
Not many fall colors yet to be seen (we returned with a little sunburn from an 80F degree sunny day) but we spotted these few colorful leaves hiding along the way.
We were not the only ones enjoying the sunshine!
All in all, a beautiful day and way to get away from it all!
We ended our day with a short ride in the country to experience a little bit of fall at Darden’s Country Store. Their delectable homemade apple pie and treats definitely made our staycation grooves yummier!
grace, peace & stacation grooves
