Two hundred and sixteen

This day I took my kids to one of my favorite places in the world. A lovely park in Enon, Virginia that recently was renamed, but the new name means nothing to me because it will always be Point of Rocks Park. I have been going there since I was seven. It was very close to all the houses I lived in through most of my life. I have good memory after good memory of it. It is even where my husband proposed to me under a moonlit sky. This was a hot summer day, but we packed some water bottles and headed out for a hike through the trails and marsh walk. It was a lovely day and my not quite 2 year old daughter did really great. She kept up with us even though her little legs got tired and I had to carry her some. This is us sitting on an overlook toward the end of the hike. Love my family, and love this day.

Two hundred and twelve

This shot was taken on the first trip down Rt. 10 in Virginia from Enon to Suffolk to visit my in-laws in their new place after we moved back from Texas. We were headed back to my parents house in Enon after a nice visit with my in-laws. There was a place I had been to once before to take some band photos of my husband’s old band. It was an old cemetery with ruins of a brick church. The day we took photos there it was freezing and the wind was blowing like crazy. I had always wanted to go back there and I took the opportunity to on this trip. I stopped and took about ten minutes to walk around and take some photos. Right behind the cemetery was a huge field of corn. I took some photos of it as well and snapped this shot of myself in front of it. I like this shot. That day was warm and beautiful. I really enjoyed my brief time there.

Amazing that it was built in 1639. Sad that it was destroyed and never rebuilt. Don’t really know the history of it, perhaps I could do some research.
