Summer in the Lowcountry..

Saw the beautiful sky today and wanted to share with my 5 lovely followers,  then when i was watching my bird feeder i saw a little mushroom that had sprouted in my fern .... i was waiting for a little caterpillar to be on top, like Alice in Wonderland!!. Anywho, hope everyone has a great weekend!!  Cheers :)

Wedding gift...

So i finally got married on Memorial Day weekend in May, and my new last name is Fish!!

So while we were celebrating that evening we ran into a neat shop called "Indigo", in downtown Charleston.

In it we found all these cool wrought iron fishes, and my father decided to buy one for us to proudly hang on

our house.  So today we finally made time to hang it up (after we treated it) and this is it's new home. 

I'd like to call him something, but i'm not quite sure yet??

Anywho, here he is in all his glory!!   Cheers :)

Friday, July 9, 2010 old farmhouse in the middle of the blue ridge mountains

So for our fourth of July, we were lucky enough to meet the granddaughters  (who are now in there 70's)  of an original doctor from the town of Clifton Forge, Va.  They have passed down an old farm house from the 1914's to there granddaughters  (the ones we met) , who now have thier own children and grandchildren.  It's been in the same family for a lonnnng time.  It's called Wiggam.

We took a small tiny path off a windey road  to arrive there.  Then to get to the house, which is on the other side of the river, we took a little canoe.  There we sat on the stoop and jumped in the river,  one of the cleanest rivers in the state.  So clean you could drink it,  (although I wouldn't) .  It was beautiful.  We saw an Eco-system thriving all throughout!!   Snails, fish, algae...etc.... 

The family dog, called Tripp was so protective that ever time the owner got in, so did she!!

Then there was my husband and father trying to row a canoe, that didn't pan out because they didn't realize they needed to be facing the other direction!!
