Driving around Farmville - the positives

Before people start thinking that the driving around here is terrible, let me point out the fact that when you're driving in the day time, no matter where you go or what season you're in, everything is gorgeous! There are no highways down here that don't have trees growing along both sides of them or a river running beside it. Every single bend in the road holds something new. Here are some pictures from various drives we've taken over the past couple months to prove it.



Honestly, I know one-lane roads are more inconvenient (especially when you get stuck behind a slow driver, or a tractor... believe me, it happens.) but I definitely wouldn't trade them back in for the concrete highways and traffic of northern VA.

I am so jealous you don't have to deal with DC Diplomats or (yea I'll go ahead and say it) Asians on the road anymore!

Having just driven on those roads, I agree it was beautiful. However once the sun goes down... those roads are incredibly scary! No lights except when another car is coming from the opposite direction and is blinding you!!! But it was wonderful to see you and Chris, Katie! Hope the basketball season is wonderful!
