|Green grass, some buds on a few trees, blue, blue Lake Erie. April 19, 2014|
|Azaleas on Tybee Island|
I said last year, and it was the same wee-ooh, wee-ooh experience this year, that it is like we are going back in time as we head north. We leave summer heat in Florida to see full-on spring mid-way through the trip, to end in early spring here.
On Tybee Island, we opted for a quick walk/run down to the beach for a pic or two, rather than a beach walk with the dogs, as it was FREEZING (left 90s the day before to see only 60s in Savannah) and blowing a gale off the Atlantic Ocean.

|I need to know what these trees were all through Georgia, the Carolinas Virginia, West Virginia and a few in Ohio.|
|Even at 70 mph (110kph) through a dirty windshield, these knocked my socks off. South Carolina.|
|Just outside Winston-Salem, NC|
Quilt idea: I can SO see a fresh leaf-green and wisteria purple quilt, 1/2 square triangles, maybe with some white in it. Ooh, even a scrappy quilt like Cynthia's from her April 18, 2014 post!!
|Stunning, no? This is just south of the Virginia state line.|
|These are in West Virginia|
How I do love the Appalachian Mountains. One of these trips, we plan to follow some of highways through them, as opposed to the Interstates. We did go off the Interstate in Ohio, and both of us just loved it. It reminded me of Bill Bryson's The Lost Continent. While finding a link for his website, I discovered that HE walked in the Appalachians, so I will have to read that book, A Walk in the Woods.
Speaking of reading, it's time to read and have my tea. Outside! In the sun! On our patio! It's 60 (15C) here right now, yahoo! I never did finish Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt, which is really really good, and is all about Savannah. Then it's downstairs to my quilting corner. :-)
