Tom and I were invited to a wedding this past weekend. We were happy to be invited, not only to see our friend’s son get married, but also because the wedding was held in a beautiful area of Virginia.
The Shenandoah Valley offers so much scenic beauty, along with quaint towns, apple orchards, pumpkin patches. We crammed in as much as we could. We started off canoeing on the Shenandoah River.
There were a few rapids, or “ripples” as the outfitters called them. Just enough to add a little excitement.
These turtles were enjoying the sun.
We had a very peaceful hour on the river.
Then it was off to a cute little town in search of pumpkins and apples.
This cottage was engulfed in roses!
This beautiful church has become a yoga studio. I wish I could have done yoga there. I know it would have perfect karma.
We did find pumpkins and apples.
I should have bought more. There were so many different types, with names I had never heard of: ladies who lunch, long island cheese, snowball.
We are making plans for a return trip to this beautiful area.
