Daniel’s fall break ended today. Though he spent many hours doing schoolwork, we still got the chance to unwind a bit, taking a trip to the Fall Foliage Art Festival in Waynesboro on Saturday, going on a quiet walk yesterday evening, and eating at a couple local restaurants.
The skies are bright again and the weather is mild. Judging by today’s crowds at the coffee shop and on the Mall, Charlottesvillians have fall fever. I’m looking forward to every tree adorned in fiery autumn hues (the street photo above was taken in mountainous Waynesboro; Charlottesville hasn’t fully embraced fall yet). I’m crossing my fingers that Shenandoah National Park will open again soon so I can take in the view on Skyline Drive.
