Saturday drive to Colonial Beach


The following three pictures are taken by my daughter - Annette
colonial beach , VA - 9.21.2013


nap time
 the tree that looks like camouflage ,   leaves are turning too.
peeling bark is so pretty

 primping,  and one stray that is hurriedly walking by

overcast and ready for rain

checking out shops


Like this one

 
 
 
 


Steve purchased local art on oyster shells

I got the lighthouse and Annette got a seagull painted on one.

pretty fall plantings in the town


mums totally covered in blooms

Cottages in town


white planters with red and white petunias and geraniums - very showy

I like seeing the different decorations in the yards
Alexander G. Bell  house
 
 
 
Looking ahead to the view to the river.
I am sure these hibiscus must be in pots in the ground,  I never could get mine to live in this climate all year.


very weathered detail on the town hall building




stained glass above a window on town hall bldg.

Steve enjoying the quiet  on the dock

Was a nice relaxing day spent and much needed after the past month with many twists and turns.

  1. Looks like a nice trip Betsy. Your so lucky to be able to go to the beach so often. I really like the duck photo with the seagull passing through, that's funny. And those houses are so pretty.
    Have a great rest of your day,
    Gina
