And finally, a spot not too far from the diner, one I last featured here early this past spring. If you go to the link, check out the second to last picture. It's taken standing at the bottom of the white towers (a cement factory) in the midground of the image below.

Another image from our visit. Can you tell what it is?

This seems like an obvious pairing, right? But I took these photos in two different places, and in the opposite order pictured, and I didn't even think of the connection until long after I took the second image. I like discovering these sort of unconscious themes or patterns playing out in my work.

On Labor Day, we decided to hike at a local park with a beautiful boardwalk through a marsh on the Appamatox River. When we arrived, we discovered this large group had set up quite a party at the park. After we hiked for a bit, we stopped at the playground and caught some of their volleyball game.
Nearby, a group of four kids, ages ten to 14 or so, were playing a game of baseball. This girl impressed me by holding her own with three boys.

The power finally came back on last night just in time for us to use hot water and the dishwasher as we cleaned up from dinner. This afternoon a crew of three or four big trucks and half a dozen county employees rumbled down the street, stopping at the house next door to remove limbs and debris created by the hurricane. My kids, and let's be honest, my husband and myself as well, were thrilled to watch this huge claw manipulate the branches into the back of a waiting dump truck.

Day 6... you guessed it... no power. We visited the elementary school where I helped with the four seasons mosaic panels earlier this year. The waterfall above is in the garden where the panels were installed. We were especially excited by the half dozen fat and happy goldfish we saw swimming in the garden pond!
