A New Adventure
According to Maps! it was 32 miles to their house and was going to take 46 minutes. But we were making the turn and going over way sooner.
It did warn us along the way that it was a windy road and to be careful.
OMG! Hairpin turns with recommended speeds of 10 and 15 MPH. But gosh it was a beautiful ride.
I had my camera in hand as I have jumped with both feet into this 365 Project. A website that you sign up with and then post a photo that you have taken
My camera is one I bought about a year ago. A Lumix, if that means anything to anyone. Pretty much a point and shoot, though it does have a lot of settings. And now that I want to really learn about it, I guess I better go and download the instruction manual.
There were many spots along the road that I wanted to have Jay stop so I could get a shot, but he was just too stressed. Finally we came around a turn and
Voila....the images I have posted to the right were upon us.
I was amazed.
Kind of like doing a sample stitch of all the different stitches my sewing machine will do and having it in front of me so I know what I want to choose. Which is really kinda funny because I do basically a straight stitch and a zig zag. And with my camera, I have always just used an auto everything setting.
Dinner was so nice. Two of the five of us were vegan, and I am enjoying learning more about what they eat, and why.
Actually one is vegan 6 days a week and eats fish one day. I find myself actually desiring more fresh fruits and veggies and less meat products since moving.
Late evenings are my craving time, and last night what I wanted and what I ate about 10:30 was some fresh tomato wedges and sliced cucumbers with some seasoning and a bit of vinegar. Kinda scary.
And as a treat, below is what we found at the other side of the "mountain".
