I have no reason to be grumpy, yesterday was a glorious day in Virginia. The sun was sifting throught the beautiful fall leaves and it was the perfect day for a day trip.
Our family hit the road about 10:00 on our way to Paint Bank, VA. A beautiful little town about two hours from where I live and very close to White Sulpher Springs, WV. On the way, we stopped at the VA State fish hatchery. They had ponds full of every kind of trout you can think of.
This is the view of the top of the restaurant from where I was sitting.
Yours truly standing on the swinging bridge.
There are lots of scenes like this in the restaurant. It is truly very pretty.
Yngwie was home and went with us!
This is a view of the restaurant from the parking lot. Look at those mountains in the background!
We drove on into Sweet Springs WV where this place used to be a resort. The area is known for it's "healing" springs and many presidents and famous people came to Sweet Springs to relax and heal in the waters.
This is the old bathhouses around the pool. All of this has fell into disrepair and is abandoned now. Apparently there is no money for it's upkeep, which is such a shame considering it's history.
All in all it was a fun and relaxing day and I should sit back awhile and reflect on the blessing of living in such a beautiful place and getting to spend the day with my loved ones. I have no reason to be grumpy.
