If you guessed the movie Sommersby yesterday you were correct. They shot some of the movie in the rolling fields pictured above. You may not know this, but Virginia is a popular spot for movie locations.
I also took some pictures while we were taking Mom's shortcut (um, scenic route) through the country. I get so excited when I see fields of tobacco. You don't see them too often anymore around here. I am the granddaughter of tobacco farmers, on both sides. When I see those fields I long to be drawn into all the old stories I've heard my whole life.
The church above sat right in the middle of those beautiful tobacco fields. Aren't you guys ready to head out to the country with me? I have to say that I am lucky enough to live in an area that is pretty similar to the area we traveled to over the weekend. We were about an hour west of my little farm. The land starts to roll a bit out there as you get near the Blue Ridge. I am ready to head back for another visit.
