As tonight's first photo shows...we stop for barns even in the rain! I drove over to Marie's house and Carolyn, who lives across the street from Marie, walked over to Marie's. We were on the road by 9am...and, the sun was shining. The above barn was taken a little after 9:30 am. The first place that we stopped was to take a picture of this waterfall...note that there is mist rising off the water but the sun is shining...the waterfall was taken at 9:04am.
About the time we finished capturing the goats on our cameras' memory cards, we looked up and said, "Uh-oh," and this was what we saw in the not so far distance. Isn't that a neat mail box that I captured along with the ominous clouds rolling in! This was taken about 9:25.
The rest of our trip of around 50 miles was made with only a drip now and then...and mostly those drips were coming from the trees. We had everything from sunshine, dark ominous skies, and clouds breaking up to show blue sky peeping through. Our circuitous trip took us to Shelbyville where we stopped for lunch. While lunching we saw a friend from Tullahoma and several friends from Shelbyville. I will be using today's trip photos, I imagine, for a while on the blog. I took quite a few pictures...imagine that!
Woody stayed home and held down the fort. He made quite a few attempts to do yardwork and also to get his walk in and the weather didn't cooperate for him as well as it did for us on our trip. He said that he got to the end of our street once and there came a big boom of thunder so he turned around. He said that it rained off and on most of the day here. We must have either stayed to the north, south, east, or west of the rain on our trip except for those fifteen to twenty minutes!
We had a great time driving through the beautiful rolling hills of Middle TN. We live in such a beautiful state...and, we could see all that our plentiful rains of late have done to keep those hills very, very green and the creeks running swiftly and waterfalls coming out of rocky ledges! We enjoyed seeing and attempting to capture just some of the beauty of God's world today.
Oh, I am hearing rumbles of thunder starting up as I type this...sounds like we are in for more rain...there seems to be a pattern to our weather these days = Rain, Rain, Rain, and MORE RAIN! It is now pouring! We certainly haven't had to do any watering of the gardens lately...that's nice!
