A Drive through Clarke County


We did an art tour in Clarke County this weekend which involved driving through pretty Virginia countryside. When I spied this stone church, I had to stop and take a picture. Salem Regular Baptist Church was built in 1810.


Yesterday morning was quite cloudy so this photo of a farm came out a bit dark. The crops in the foreground are saplings protected by tree tubes. 

Another type of farm combines recreation with agriculture. I got Frank to slow the car so I could take snapshots of these characters advertising a "Fun Farm" near Berryville. It offers a corn maze, a pumpkin patch, animals, and play activities.  These figures are dressed in the colors of the football team of Washington, DC, which is about 70 miles away.

  11. Those are fun structures. I'm thinking the Washington Redskins [or is that now changed because of political incorrectness?]

    Salem....neat church! But not Salem that is associated with the witch trials. :-)

    Enjoyed driving along with you Linda.

    1. The team hasn't changed their name yet. I think they will within the next year, since we no longer refer to the First Americans by their (supposed) skin color!
