Country Roads

While taking a drive in the country,


we saw nature at its finest.



To our surprise, a string of Jalopies came driving from the other direction.  I just had to get out of my car and take a few pictures.







We stopped for breakfast at a charming place and later did some shopping.


We had a nice day and started heading back.  Country road, take me home.

There is nothing more soothing than to watch people at recreation, and nature at rest. Thank you GOD for all these things, thank you God for friends you bring...to me.

Your pics look amazing
and that vintage automobile looks divine and I would love to drive one.
There is such calm and serenity we could only feel in the countryside.

We are no where NEAR being leafed out yet like that! Still enjoying some brisk mornings, but the afternoons are surely -ditch-the-jacket-! Didn't you just go nuts over those sweet antique cars? I'd drive one to work every day!

Kitty M said...

Fantastic pictures my little boy would absolutely adore those cars!

He turns 21 months old next week and 'Car'is the word he uses most often - a typical boy :-)
