Yesterday we decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and travel the 6 miles (or something like that) to Blue Ridge Parkway. It's a scenic route on a mission to trump all scenic routes. It was a gorgeous Sunday drive.
Not to stereotype, but everyone here seems to eat fried chicken (said with a NC accent of course). And in South Dakota we do not have the privilege of dining at Bojangles. SO we thought we'd see what all the fuss was about. (also on Friday we went to an apple orchard and EVERYONE there had these big boxes from Bojangles and I was not about to feel left out again!) Bojangles is a great name by the way.
Our tailgate chicken dinner came with alllll the fixin's: spicy beans, coleslaw, dirty rice, and biscuits. (said with a NC accent again...what can I say. it's contagious)
A heart shaped chicken breast...really? We heart Bojangles :)
We walked on trails, stopped at look-out spots, found cool leaves and plants, sprinted passed "frequent bear sightings" signs.
Generally just stood in awe of our surroundings all day long.
Our minds couldn't help but gravitate to God's creativity and majesty.
What an awesome God to do this.
Wouldn't you just love a narrative of that day in creation?
"Now over here I'll just put 30 bajillion trees so people can drive through here someday and gawk at my creation."
Yes, He indeed put on a show for us yesterday.
And today starts a brand new week in our new environment.
I've made a list a mile long, just like always.
We're starting school up again today after a little "fall break".
And we're going to be doing some more exploring.
Happy Monday to you. And you. Any you!
