Trying to recapture yesterday...

Yesterday we went for a rambling drive...I think it is the first time we have gone anywhere without a destination in mind since Roger's stroke.  We have taken short detours on the way here and there, but I think yesterday was the first with no other point than going for a drive...


 I snapped the one above, while driving.  Not bad for  just holding and snapping.  It is one of my favorite little barns/cribs or whatever it was used for.


We headed down the hill pictured above....


to get to the first place we stopped...a sky to die for and dragonflies in abundance.  We probably spent half an hour or so there at the swamp. It is one of my favorite places, any time of year. Roger got tired and went and sat in the car, and I was hot, too...so we left.  I tried to take a video...not so much to show the place but I wanted you to hear the bullfrog but I must have covered up the microphone without thinking because there was no real identifiable sound.



This is another view of this old barn...I am too lazy to go looking for the other posts of it...


 
 And from there continued on north on this road...

Just thought I would share a little glimpse of our day yesterday.

Hope you all are having a Happy 4th!

That is such a beautiful drive. I tried to get my husband to go for a drive with me on Sunday, but he didn't budge. I told him that I was just in the mood to drive on country roads and look at homes and farms and animals. I love doing that. Thank you for showing me your drive.

Oh yes, gorgeous shots Rose, thank you :) Definitely one I would love.

How carefree! It sounds almost poetic to go for a drive with no firm destination in mind. I'm sure Wordsworth - "wandering lonely as a cloud" - would have totally approved. I love your swamp. I could happily hang out down there with all the wildlife for a while. So glad that Roger is feeling better.

Wow, what a beautiful drive. It looks so peaceful through your pictures I can see why you wanted to go for a ride. It's nice to take the time and just go somewhere without any place in mind.
Hope you had a wonderful 4th!
