A Picnic by The Side of the Road

 I decided to tag along with Michael when he headed home, 750 miles away.  One of these days I am going to realize that distance is not an option for these old bones!! It's more sooner than later! 

We had gotten to the mountains of Virginia and Michael was looking for us a shady place to eat the picnic we'd packed. Wasn't having any luck!!

So, he turns down this little side road and lo and behold, there surrounded by woods, was an electric substation. He pulled in, we got out and stretched our legs, let Sadie do her thing and then he opened up the cooler. 

Ham and cheese sandwiches, chips, peanut butter on club crackers and chocolate chip cookies for dessert. We ate underneath the canopy of trees, surrounded by wild flowers, moss and solitude. Such a wonderful break in our journey.

  1. Are you on your way to Alabama? It sounds like your son found a perfectly lovely place for your picnic lunch:)

  2. Oh I love a picnic...glad that your son found a spot. Glad that you are on a journey. Gotta grab your chances while Michael is still heading that way.

  3. So pretty and green! A perfect spot for a delicious picnic!
