This was parked right in front of the house when we got there. Can you spot the kids? My cousin was having a new house built right across the road. I cannot believe I didn't take one single photo of her amazingly beautiful house! Anyway, trust me, it's gorgeous, but it wasn't quite done when we were there and the road was still a mess. The kids didn't mind though because it was the weekend and there were two different digger things for them to climb around on. Also, note that my son scared me to death climbing up on the top like that, especially since there is a creek right next to it making the drop even further, so of course, I did what every normal parent would do and took a picture and told him never to do it again. :) Oh, and he did manage to fall in the creek this year while playing tag. Never a dull moment!
We took a drive to the "Road to Nowhere" one day to enjoy the scenery.
The road ends at the other end of this tunnel. It's way bigger than it looks. And it was freezing inside it!!
Our cousin and her favorite guy, Rabby. That on the right is the view from the road driving up to the tunnel.
We made it through the tunnel! My watermark is blocking it, but he's jumping in that pic.
Cutie cousins. :)
Most of the leaves were still green, but there were still some pretty ones if you looked harder.
I love this shot I took on the way back through the tunnel. He looks like a zombie or something to me. Kinda spooky.
Some more shots of the pretty leaves.
I really am glad we went. It is nice to be back in sunny Florida though. I really, really do miss fall, but I think I miss mostly the colors and the sounds, not so much the reality. Like I really don't miss the cold and I don't miss raking leaves, and the dampness and fact that it means winter is on it's way. So yeah, I think a weekend trip in the fall is pretty much the perfect solution! I can't wait for next year's trip!
