Somerset, Virginia Views

B asked me if I wanted to go for a ride. As a surprise he took me to the Somerset Country Store and bought me a barbecue sandwich. The store sits at the intersection of routes 231 and 20 in a very scenic area a few miles away from Montpelier, the home of James and Dolley Madison. I love barbecue - southern genes I think. We took our sandwiches and drove down the road and picnicked and enjoyed the scenery.
We parked beside a country church and enjoyed this view. There was a very friendly cat who was curious about us.

Across the street was this field of soybeans that were turning yellow. You can see the mountains in the background. It was a lovely picnic and a nice surprise!

Check out Outdoor Wednesday at A Southern Daydreamer.

What a beautiful fall day! I so miss Virginia! Hopefully I will be coming back in 1 year 8 months and 20 days, but I'm not counting or anything.:-)

Such a beautiful day! This part of the country is so gorgeous. My sister lived in Harrisonburg for many years. It was always a treat to visit her and drive through the countryside.

Your photos are lovely.

Oh what a gorgeous setting! I've never been to Virginia - but from what I dreamed it might be, I am shocked! It's spectacular! Thanks for sharing! Hope you can check out my blog soon, the first of the many interior shots of the house now that I'm having better luck with my camera. The first of the series is up now!

Beautiful country! I love the yellow soybean shots. Isn't Montpelier they place Andy Griffith always used to talk about? A little town close to Mayberry?
