I took a few trips last year, one to my beloved Charlottesville in September; a weekend trip to Asheville, NC, in the fall in October; and most recently a trip to NYC with my daughter and two of my grandkids. I had a wonderful time everywhere I visited.
Here are some of my photos from Charlottesville. I just love it there. It's one my absolute, favorite places in the whole world; and I never get tired of going there. It has everything, history, beauty, wonderful restaurants, great wineries.

We drove up to the Blue Ridge Parkway in Charlottesville and felt the temperature drop. The weekend started out misty and wet but ended up sunny and sparkling. We took the time to stop at an overlook at look out over a gap in the mountains. Coming around a bend, we saw a huge field of sunflowers that seemed to go on forever. I'm telling you, I wanted to stay right there and never come back. The nice part is that it's so close, less than two hours down the road to everything I love.
