scenic virginia

drove scenic route 5 from richmond to williamsburg
"plantation road" of our early presidents
this is shirley plantation
oldest deeded plantation in virginia
and 10th generation - robert e. lee family

lovin the cute crab apple trees

and of course my sweet boy, who picked some for me

imagining how life use to be

loved the tree lined drives

quite a long carriage ride from the capital in richmond !!

plantations of cotton and tabacco

resting in dappled sunlight

gloriously beautiful day along "plantation road"
