Last weekend we had the opportunity to spend a few days with my Mom and Step-Dad at their cottage retreat in Virginia’s Northern Neck on Hack’s Creek.
With March and the start of our farming season at our heels, we are taking every opportunity to enjoy a few days here and there out of town. I fell in love with the quaint townships and not another person was seen as we strolled on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. Everyone (especially Naomi) took advantage of the chance for extra sleep. Intense Battleship tournaments consumed our afternoons and fresh, local oysters were quite the treat.
“Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.”
― Henry David Thoreau, Walden
