Covered bridges! There is just something so appealing about them, don't you think?
The covered bridge pictured above is at Stone Mountain Park. Cars are allowed to drive on it but they have a space for folks to walk over it too. (We always walk!) Funny I just told you about walking over the bridge in Chattanooga on my last post and now I have this one in Georgia! (This one was built almost at the same time, it was built in 1891.)
Does the change of leaves make me happy? You bet it does! Let me show you some of the beautiful photos from October from Georgia...
The most wonderful thing? Our leaves in the Metro Atlanta area do not peak until the first week of November, so we still have lots of color to come. I think I will just sit on this bench and watch til then.... dang, I am so funny!
The other thing I need to tell you- I read "Dracula" this month! Oh, I am sure you are saying that you know the story very well but admit it, have you ever read it? If not, please do so! It is such a wonderfully written book, I was that surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I was dusting a bit at my home and since our son left a load of books at our house, my eye fell upon "Dracula" on his bookshelf. I tried to read the paperback but my poor old eyes were not up to the fine print so I went to my local library and checked out such a beautiful copy that my dear husband has now ordered the very same book for me. It is a Penguin Classic. This book not only has the story of Dracula but it also has an interview that Bram Stoker did with Winston Churchill! It also has letters between Bram Stoker and Walt Whitman! And there is even a piece that was written by Bram Stoker's mother. Isn't that amazing? (You can guess that she also was a great writer.)
