Loving the Countryside
On Saturday, Son had a track meet in a small, beautiful town nearly an hour south of us called Carrollton. It still very 'vintage' with small shops, a town square. It truly looked like we had landed in 'Mayberry.' Of course, while I waited on the events to begin, I had to wander the surroundings w/my camera. It was a cool, sunny morning but I was transfixed by the rolling green hills dotted w/dandelions, the big old farm houses sitting atop hills, cows & horses grazing in pastures.
But mostly what got me was the quiet. I could feel any trace amounts of stress melt away.
I want to live there now. :-)
Pictures by: me :-) (Don't you adore the red porch swing?) I helped myself to a seat for a spell, until I remembered, I was supposed to be cheering on my Son's track events (ooops!! :-))
