Picnic On The Maury River

Several weeks ago Dirt Man, Wylie, and I were in Lexington, Virginia. We enjoyed a picnic beside the Maury River. 

Locks of the Maury – used to be a dam here.

The walls are like hanging baskets with all the foliage growing, climbing, and just dangling in the air.

Wylie wanted to swim with the ducks…but it would have required her to venture into water where she couldn’t touch the bottom. She opted to wade close to shore and drink, drink,drink, and lap it up some more…I wanted to get in as well, but we had places to go and things to do…maybe another time…

The Maury was gorgeous against the green of the trees, blue of the sky, and white of fluffy clouds.

You can even see the mountains peaking above the tree line.

  1. Sounds like a great time and thanks for sharing your perspective.

    Our old dog would try to drink a river at any opportunity. I even took her to the ocean one time and the salt water did not slow her down (I had to intercede though).

  2. How do you guys fins all these amazing places?!?! You and Dirtman should find some cool places to visit around nashville and we can go check them out for ya! 😉

    • We happened to be in Lexington that day for something else. However, Lexington is the coolest town ever. While it is a big history town and college town, it is filled with cool artsy things and awesome boutiques and pottery shops.

    Loved that, Suzi!

    Gorgeous photos! Especially loved the one of the mountains peaking over the tree line.

    Thanks for sharing your day with us, my friend!


    • This was on a whim. My hubby suggested we pick something up and go down to the river and eat. So we picked up pizza and ate by the river and strolled along the shore…perfectly unplanned and perfectly wonderful!
