Back Home Again

Sunday, July 19, 2009

I'm using the title of the John Denver hit for my blog, because I feel it is appropriate. I journeyed through parts of West Virginia, Virginia, Tennessee, and North Carolina this past weekend, and the beauty of this part of the country is simply unbelieveable. My first destination was Big Stone Gap, Va, to watch the outdoor drama "Te Trail of the Lonesome Pine", based on a novel by JohnFox Jr, who lived for a while in that town. I was even selected from the audience to be a juror inthe play..and received a certificate verifying my role! On Friday, we (my wife and I) journeyed through the Blue Ridge Mountains, through Va, and Tennessee to Asheville, NC to visit my in-laws, and spent a few days with them. On Saturday I walked around Lake Tomahawk, and viewed the Seven Sisters, a mountain range visible from the lake. We left this morning, stopping in Tennessee at an overlook to get a few last pictures of those beautiful mountains. But I'm glad to be home, to get back to my schedule of walking and strength training, and where I can keep a better track of my nutrition.

And, of course, to blog and chat with my Spark Friends and Facebook friends! emoticon

    Oh, I love plays! That's one thing that brought me and my husband together, especially outdoor plays. There is a place in Beckley, WV that has an outdoor theatre that just rocks, too! The first year we dated that's all we did was visit theatres..such fun! Glad you had a chance to enjoy some, as well as the visit throughout the green territories...lol...hope you'll share with us those pics you took. Have a great day!

    Glad to see you had such a good time - what fun to be in the play! Hope Saturday's walk wasn't too much for that foot of yours.

    I must say I have an unfashionable love of John Denver's music! I had several albums before we all went over to CD... Good for singing in the bath or when out walking the dog!
