|Yellow Wildflowers Blooming most everywhere we went that week; This batch was taken on our walk around the Skyland Resort area where we stayed.|
There are two groupings: 1. around the Skyland Resort where we stayed; 2. Overlooks along Skyline Drive (between Skyland Resort and Front Royal, Virginia).
|Our view of the Shenandoah Valley looking from the balcony of our room at Skyland Resort|
|As we walked to dinner one evening through the resort, I just had to take a picture of a beautiful Butterly enjoying the Thistle Bloom.|
|On that same walk, we saw more pictures of the Shenandoah Valley below.|
|I'm always impressed by the HUGE Fir Trees on our walk at Skyland Resort. This picture doesn't really show the overall vastness of that tree. Amazing!|
|More yellow wildflowers along one of the maintenance roads at Skyland;|
|Since last week's blog post was ALL about ME --and my BIRTHDAY, I must show some pictures of my Sweetheart, who made this trip possible for me. George is standing at one of the overlooks along Skyline Drive.|
|I loved seeing all of the cloud formations.... We had a beautiful day to visit that area.|
|Every Overlook gives us different views; I loved seeing the shadows in this picture.|
|More beautiful mountains and pretty puffy clouds|
|More shadows --and a different look as the sun plays Peak-A-Boo with the clouds|
|This is my favorite picture from the overlooks... I loved the clouds, the shadows and the sun peaking through....|
|Anyone who visits the overlooks on Skyline Drive ALWAYS has to stop (us included) and take pictures from the rocks... Who is that handsome man climbing up on those rocks to get more pictures???|
Hope you had a great week... We certainly did!!! After getting home from our big trip on August 10, we had three very special get-togethers with family/friends this past week... On August 13, we met good friends, Judy and Charlie, at Cades Cove in the Smokies for lunch and a visit. Then in late afternoon that day, we met two of our sons (Bert and Mark) in Townsend for dinner at the Trailhead Restaurant... Then, on Saturday, August 17, the other son, Jeff and his wife, Dawn, came to see us here at home..... SO--as you can imagine, it was a terrific week!!!!
Have a good one, and remember to get some exercise and stay hydrated!!!!!!!!
