This Hallowed Ground

No, not the civil war book by Bruce Catton. And maybe "hallowed" is a slight exageration. But I did get the feeling that there's something very special about this piece of real estate!

On Labor Day weekend, Mindy took me to the place where she will be set up near Zapp Hall in Warrenton. I got to see the lay of the land. Up close. Personal.

I liked the colors, textures, highlights and shadows of this nearby rustic outbuilding. It seemed very photo-worthy!

I hope I am not treading on her toes to blog about our visit, but it was exciting to finally see this place in person! I'm pretty sure she will do a thorough blog later, so consider this only a sampling!

Talk about chippy white paint! It's quiet now, but not for long! I look forward to meeting new and old friends there very soon!

In the words of BTO...You ain't seen nothing yet, b-b-baby!
I hope you like people, 'cause you are about to see a slew of 'em!

They are certainly photogenic. I've never been to Roundtop so we'll just venture there thru your pictures. Jan

Those are great pictures and that does look like such a great place.
I'm so excited Mindy gets to go set up there, it'll be so fun. She's just so great at all that sort of stuff.

Thanks about the footprints in the sand picture on my blog, I was walking behind Molly and I thought Hmmmmmmmmm cute picture.
Also the " R " made out of sea shells, I'm really thinking of having that enlarged and framed.

Have a good afternoon

Most wonderful Superhero David...I could not thank you enough if I worked at it all day long! Oh. My. Goodness. I owe you BIG for those super detailed tips you gave me on refinishing my old oak furniture. You have no idea how much your advice has helped me. It will be my pleasure and honor to meet you and Mindy at Warrenton and give you a proper thank you in person.
Bless you!!!
