Thursday the snow slowed a bit and someone plowed the driveway. I took the opportunity to go to town with groceries and visiting in mind.
But before I got to town I had to stop and grab this barn with the dark clouds.
And this orchard with the rope of clouds above it.
Once in town I stopped by Dog Ears Bookstore to visit with owner Sarah and her person Pamela.
We chatted for awhile and then I got brave and drove eleven miles over curving hilly snow covered roads to Leland where I spent a few bone chilling minutes wandering historic Fishtown
I don’t know what the temperature was, but with the wind blowing I know it was below zero.
I’d see something interesting, take off the gloves, shoot the image, and put those gloves back on while stowing the camera under my coat as fast as I could.
I didn’t stay very long. This town is definitely a tourist destination, though there were plenty of locals out and about. They didn’t seem that cold.
Along the way home I saw a few interesting things that made me pull over and attempt a capture.
I was only out there a couple of hours, but by the time I got back to the house I was glad to look at the view from the sofa.
And I was grateful for the little lap warmer named Lydia too.
