Basye Random-osity

First of all, I hope all my fellow Americans had a pleasant Independence Day. We had rain but it let up in time for fireworks. We saw a spectacular display from our back yard, although it was several miles away. We assumed it was in Strasburg since the accompanying music sounded clear, echoing off the side of the mountains. But then I read the Strasburg's fireworks display was cancelled due to the wet weather so apparently what we saw was the show in Middletown.

My photos today are from the town of Basye, Virginia. We used to live there in Bryce Resort, which is a neat place. I'm using the Good, Random, and Fun format and linking to Monday Murals and The Barn Collective.

The Good: A cheerful mural brightens up the store at Wetlands Trading Company.

The Random: Directly across the road is this red barn. 


The Fun: On Saturday we visited BryceFest at the resort. Here you see a mini-golf course in the foreground, the festival booths behind it, and the hills and ski slope in the background. There seemed to be more craft vendors this year, although a few of the usual ones weren't there.

  10. Such a cool mural on the building. It is definitely one that will put a smile on your face. The barn is an example of one of those tried and true designs. It looks so nice. Well kept. genie
