I just love the layers of mountains in this picture taken in Norfolk. We headed up to George's hometown of Norfolk today to participate in some of the festivities they had going on. I didn't take any pictures of the farmers market which we enjoyed and brought home some edible souvenirs. :)
Our first stop was the Immaculate Conception Church to view the stained glass windows. They were so beautiful.
We then went to the Historical Society where George aced a little quiz on identifying architectural pictures in town.
This was an interesting display of buildings that were once in Norfolk but no longer stand.
|This was the sign from George's doctor.|
Having grown up in Norfolk, George figured out a couple pretty quickly. I even was able to figure out a couple and we set out driving around Norfolk deciphering the clues and photographing our answers. This kept us busy for over an hour and we thoroughly enjoyed it. This is our kind of fun (though ask us about the road race we did the month before we got married--we each had second thoughts after that!) We have 5 stumpers left but fortunately we have until September 4th to figure this out and we are determined.
As we rode around, I was able to take some other pictures besides the scavenger hunt ones. These were other photos of the day. I wish I had my good camera, but my little one does a decent job too.
|George made me take a picture of this house because it was a Sears & Roebuck house. It came as a kit bought through the catalog.|
|It's hard to capture that these keep going down the hill. Thousands of them!|
|Creek was pretty dried up underneath.|
