Blue Monday - Decking The Halls In Fincastle

(click on photo to enlarge)

Waiting on the heavy rain that was heading our way Sunday, we decided to take a little Sunday drive before the weather turned. The sky looked intimidating but the weather was warm and we never saw a rain drop! Here we are passing through Fincastle and I noticed they are getting the town all Christmas'ed up! I love Fincastle during the Christmas season. I've shown you a photo HERE of the town all lit up at night...and that building there is the old jail, which I've shown you HERE...and looking back over the years, here's some shots of the Fincastle Christmas Parade: HERE...HERE...HERE...HERE...HERE...and HERE!

This is my first time to participate in the Blue Monday linky. I'm such a joiner! So if you want to see more stuff with blue, visit Blue Monday!

And last but not least...sending my thoughts and prayers to those affected by the tornadoes that hit on Sunday afternoon....

  2. Great shot! I love those blues in it. Some Christmas decorating is starting in Altavista, too.

    Yes, prayers for those affected by those strong storms. So sad.

  4. It was crazy warm here...I expected a storm, but we never got anything but wind. I'm excited about Christmas, but not ready to start decorating yet.

  6. The Christmas lights tradition in Fincastle is an old one, and it does make the town look festive!

  7. No rain here until what sounded like another deratio came through at 130am today. I don't think that I have been there for the parade but I have been over there at Christmas, it is a neat town and was kind of the center of the regional world back in the 1700s. Rt 220 started out as the Danville - Franklin - Fincastle turnpike as that was the place to go.

  13. Hi Tanya,

    I spent a good bit of my childhood in DC and MD, so I feel as if we're neighbors!

    Happy 1st Blue Monday!

  20. It will be beautiful for Christmas, but, really, do they really need to do it so early? The Christmas season seems to be advanced every year.
