Day 18 of 30 Days of Thankfulness (Rivers, Trees, and Villages)

I had a water test yesterday in Weems. Any day I get to drive up on the Northern Neck is a good day.  I love it up there. It is a reminder to me of how beautiful it is here. 

Having grown up in a place where we didn't even have water in our rivers I am a little bit awed every time I drive over the Rappahannock Bridge. 

The only thing better than driving over the Rappahannock Bridge is driving over it in the fall. I love the leaves here.  Fall has always been my favorite time of year but I never really understood the beauty of it until I moved to a place that has real trees.  The colors are breath taking.

Another thing I love about this area are all the little villages in the area.  They have a charm and a homey kinda feel that you just don't get in the planned and well-laid out communities farther west.

So whether we live here forever or I get my wish to move to a place where it rains everyday and never gets hot (yeah right) I have to say living here has been wonderful!
