If you have two loaves of bread sell one and buy flowers. For although the bread will nourish your body, the flowers will nourish your soul.

Dam # 5

One of my favorite things to do is to go for a drive, find a road I've never taken before, and discover where it goes. Sometimes it's just a nice drive and sometimes you discover little treasures...a beautiful scene, something historical, a new bird (for my bird watching list), a neat little flea market, etc. We so often overlook that which is right under our noses.

Last week, Gary and I took the long way home from a simple trip to Lowe's, traveling down a road we hadn't traveled in a long time. We live close to the C&O Canal, and we stopped at Dam #5. The day was cool and gray, but it was still a beautiful sight.

An old lockhouse.

After living in central Texas, it's going to be a while before I take this area for granted I think. Love the photos, and the reminder of why I'm so very lucky to live here.
