Random-osity: Harrisonburg and Locke's Mill.

The Good: This colorful mural is on the side of the Indian and American Cafe in Harrisonburg. 

The Random: Not far from there is the downtown post office. It's not nearly as grand as the former location of the post office (shown yesterday), now being used as a court house. 

The Fun: This couple is enjoying a lovely afternoon on the Shenandoah River near Berryville. This is at a public boat landing on Lockes Mill Road. 

Mosaic Monday: The collage shows other scenes from that area. The red building is Locke's Mill, now restored and selling organic grain. This mill dates to 1876 and a previous mill was there in the 18th century. 


  1. I love the mural... I am going to have to snap a picture of some murals in my town... beautiful pictures!

  2. I do like those wall paintings - and I can only hope that I can get out on a river in a boat soon!

  6. The Shenandoah looks like it's running fast Linda, winter rains?

  7. Fantastic photos! That is a beautiful mural :)

  8. My step daughter lived near Harrisonburg when she was little, it was our last stop before arriving at her house. Very cool mural.

  9. Interesting mural. Lovely photos of the river.
    Hope you are having a great day!

  10. Particularly like the mural painted on that red brick building.
    It's too early to see fall colours, as those trees are still green ... Actually Autumn began a few days ago. Beautiful place.
    I would like to swim through that water. It's so clean!
    Thanks for sharing pictures of those bdautiful places.

  11. Such a colourful mural.

    All the best Jan

  12. Beautiful collages Linda, and lovely and bright mural.
    Thanks for participating in Monday Murals.

  13. Linda - such an interesting mural - I wonder what the artist is trying to convey? We are having some lovely "Indian summer" weather, and everyone in Montana is trying to get outside to enjoy it while we can! Thanks for sharing your local scenes with everyone at Mosaic Monday!
