Yesterday was a good day.........and 3 years ago






Yesterday was a GREAT day actually. VBF and hubby and I drove to Pisgah Covered Bridge which is in the middle of winding roads and trees. It is no longer actually used, but sits beside the "adjusted" road and new bridge, which is not covered. We got out and walked around it and down to the water in the creek. They have a great little trail down and over the creek and back to the bridge.

It was cool, but bright and sunny and we were the only ones there. It was nice to walk in the quiet of the woods and enjoy the trees . Hopefully with VBF and I walking more we will be able to enjoy more walks like this.

This is the start of the pathway around at the bridge. It is a very nice trail, especially for something in the middle of no where.


As you can see, it was a clear, sunny day, just right for a walk in the woods.


This little stairway leads to up and over the creek.
The creek. With recent rains it was actually "bubbling" over the rocks in places.

We also stopped by Jumping Off Rock and took a look at the river/creek going by there. It was lovely. I can't wait to see it in different seasons. And with the recent rains, the mosses and lichens were bright and vivid greens and blue grays.

And to round off the day, we ate lunch at the Ellerbe Springs Inn. My first time there. Great down home cooking in a Victorian style bed and breakfast.

So if this is the first day of 2008 and sets the tone for the rest of the year, it should be a great year.

Hopefully, since I am off today, I will scan in some things I have drawn for the daily affirmations and get a couple of journal pages done in my visual journal.

AND 3 years ago yesterday I started this blog. There were huge gaps in posting in the past as I struggled with depression. Hopefully, that is behind me and I have come through on the other side. But it seems weird....THREE YEARS!

  1. Love the bridge. It reminds me of the movie, "Bridges of Madison County". Time flies doesn't it?
