Where will your wheels take me?
End goal: nature!
Trains have always fascinated me. And my idea of adventure is hopping on to see places I’ve only read about.
Nothing beats the familiar train whistle or the chug of the wheels as it hit the tracks. The long hours to a destination are just opportunities to bond with loved ones over a cup of coffee or two.
I was in the East Coast three years ago and since driving to Washington, DC is not something we relish – so, train ride it is! The landscape views, scenery, people I’ve met, smells and sounds are just some of the things that made train rides so fascinating.
And it didn’t hurt that there was WIFI on board – ha!
Train rides allow you to dream en route to your destination. It’s a mode of transportation that forces the body to slow down and enjoy the view.
Truly an escapist-mode of transportation!
The Daily Post: “I’d Rather Be…” Weekly Photo Challenge
Lovely Norfolk Botanical Garden boosts of magnificent trees and colorful flowering shrubs.
The Rule of Thirds is a photography concept that puts the subject of the photograph off-center.
This photo was taken at the Norfolk Botanical Garden in Virginia Beach, Virginia USA last May 2014. Beauty was everywhere and everywhere was beauty!
I can still feel the crisp, morning air and remember the scents and sounds that came with just enjoying that moment. I’ve never seen such abundance of exploding colors, it hurt my eyes. Kudos to our Creator who made everything for our enjoyment.
The intricacy of every floral design as well as the woodwork of the trees, made me appreciate the joy that our Lord must have felt in the creative process.
It’s all good!
