Duke of Gloucester Street (aka D.O.G. Street) in Colonial Williamsburg
Had lunch yesterday at Hamilton's in Charlottesville and ordered the Vegetarian "Blue Plate" Special. As far as I could figure it was made up of a couple of different kinds of squash pickled radishes, cabbage, carrots, arugula (?), and some things fried (?). Very good. Just right, as Goldilocks would have put it.
How about you? Eat anything new and or different over the Thanksgiving holiday?
Linking again today with Skywatch Friday
Surprising end to my hiking adventure. Near the end, a hiker stumbled and fell on the trail's loose rocks (probably worn out by her earlier ascent), suffering a contusion to her face, although no one could be certain that her injuries weren't any worse. Fortunately, I had a first aid kit with me, something I now always carry with me whenever I'm hiking in the backcountry after having witnessed a number of other such mishaps.
Anyway, with the help of another hiker or two, we soon got the injured hiker back on her feet and accompanied her to the trail's end. Always good to hike these trails with others when you can because one never ever knows what might lurk just around the next turn.
As wonderful as the view from Humpback Rocks was and is, I was equally
fascinated by what I call "trail sculpture" or, in other words, nature's
art as crafted by--who knows how many years-- of exposure to the elements
here at around 3,080 feet (938.784 meters).
Seems very late in the season for morning glory, although I don't think we've had a killing frost yet. So I suppose that explains why this vine still appears to be thriving even when nighttime temperatures have sometimes hovered just above the freezing mark.
Tropical storm Nicole passed through here yesterday, although most of its impact was felt farther west toward the Blue Ridge where I heard that up to 8 inches of rain may have fallen. Not so much here where most of the rain fell during the morning. By afternoon, the sun even put in an appearance even if only for a short while before a few more stray showers passed by.
Of greater impact will be this week's falling temperatures. Time to rummage around the house to see if I can find some warmer clothes.
