Fall 2012, part 2

Fall break was last Thursday/Friday. Me, being the "evil" mom, forgot to make dentist appointments that were long overdue, so they only had early appointments. Muhahaha...7:30am...20 miles from here = the little darlings are NOT happy to be getting up early on their day off! Not my problem. Actually once they were up and moving, they were fine. And it could have been worse, there were quite a few kids already there, so that means they have even EARLIER appointments! Mental note taken! :)

We took the backroads home...after I took the little darlings to the grocery store with me...geez, what a big mistake! I hate wasting a trip to town though without doing several things, so I was sorta screwed. They got donuts out of me. ;) Anyway, as we're cutting cross country, we passed several cotton fields that had been picked. Continuing on, one of them noticed a huge lake in the distance...a lake I never know was there. And you could see it moving with the wind. So we took a detour.

Turns out it was a "lake of cotton"!

We had to find a place to turn around and found this gem.

I took a drive...

So I treated myself to a drive today. Just got in the car
and headed off. It was a glorious day.

EDIT: Love this so much I went back and inserted the larger picture.

This was taken yesterday when I took a short drive,
looking for some cool fog pictures. Found the barn
instead. Heard a noise on the side of me and turned
to investigate...found HIM checking me out!
Hello Mr Bull!

Bedford Lake...not as much color as I was hoping

Leaving Bedford Lake...wish the picture would
have shown all the leaves falling. They are really
hard to see.

Drove down thru the 'holler' past
George Dickel Distillery

Ovoca Lake

Other side of Ovoca Lake

Headed down to Rutledge Falls

Falls are running so low

Rock hopping across...don't fall in, don't fall in...

Halfway across

Made it!

Cool waterfall bokeh (pron. bouquet)
(meaning blurry background :) )
