Italian Countryside and Olive Oil

The Countryside of Florence is so very beautiful.  We drove from San Gimingnano to this little place that made Fattoria Olive Oil in San Donato where we had lunch, and got to taste Grappa.  It’s a good thing we weren’t driving.

The Virginia Countryside

There is peace in the beauty of the countryside.  The storms of spring produce amazing cloud formations that roll and stretch across the sky.  It is quite a spectacular display.  I’m always in awe when I see this, no matter how many times I’ve seen it before.  The countryside of Virginia seems different to me then the countryside in other states.  Whenever I look out at this expanse I somehow imagine life before cars, computers, telephones and paved roads–a colonial lifestyle when life was much simpler.
