The River Valley

On Sundays we leave behind our schedules and hectic lives to do something very peaceful or nothing at all. On this Sunday we took a drive down to the river valley. 

Our earlier plans of taking a drive upon the Blue Ridge Parkway yesterday were abandoned because of fog which lasted until late in the morning. Instead we took a drive down to the Nolichucky River Valley as seen below from the Appalachian Trail.

This rich and verdant agricultural valley is where a lot of our local produce is grown. It is a summer tradition to drive down to the river to buy local fresh vegetables and fruit. 

On this day we found lots of pumpkins at our favorite vegetable stand along with tomatoes, plants, tree bark birdhouses and other local crafts. 

I am wearing a Chico's jacket, necklace, tank and khaki jeans. The Vince Camuto animal print flats are from Nordstrom

Thanks so much for reading my blog and for all your kind comments. I hope you have a lovely week.
