Things we saw Sunday at Day Creek (Blue Ridge)
Ozzy loves spending time here...we keep him on a leash but he had visits from 3 unleashed dogs...he enjoyed them was called "Fat Mary" haha...

This is a popular place for horseback riding...

And bike riding...there are miles of trails...

The water is so peaceful...

I think this was an old farm at one time...there are several little broken down pens and old fencing...

Today I am thankful to be back among the living! I picked up whatever was going around and just felt awful! I woke up this morning feeling so much better! Linking with Michelle's Thankful Thursday
Have a great day! Wash those hands and stay healthy!
P.S. We might be getting a little snow later today! Not much...a possible inch but considering we haven't really had any I'll take it!

Day Creek . Blue Ridge . Botetourt County

Sunday was too nice to spend indoors so Nick and I took Ozzy over to Day Creek...a short drive from our house where Ozzy gets some hiking time in and Nick enjoys sitting by the creek. There were lots of people out on horses and bikes!
Warmer temps today and tomorrow too!

One of my favorite views along Mountain come around a bend in the road and this opens up...there's a house that sits over to the right and on a little hill that gets to enjoy this view!
