High Bridge Trail

I drove a few hours to the newlyweds home to bring a carload of belongings to their new home.

They in turn treated me to the most wonderful walk in their hometown of Farmville, Va

 Across the historic High Bridge,

and over the Appomattox River.

Much to see along the way.
Like beautiful fall colors and artifacts left in the woods.

And knot creatures in the plank boards.
I see a seahorse, a solitary flower, a big eyed pumpkin and a lovely heart. What do you see?

Having a MIL show up for a sleepover 10 days into a marriage must have been a bit daunting, but Chels and Tommy greeted me with warm hospitality, a wonderful dinner, fresh baked cookies and very happy hearts.

I am grateful.

Oh my the view off that bridge is fantastic. - Wonderful shots.
Loved the tree knots. I thought the one you said was a Seahorse looked like an Owl to me.
Such a sweet looking couple.

Wow, what a walk on that 'high' bridge would be. A little scary but worth it.

The newly weds look very happy.

Have a nice night and a great weekend ~ FlowerLady
