Sunny skies, cool breeze, picnic blankets, watermelon, ice tea, lemonade, mac n’ cheese, BBQ, good company, a frisbee and awesome ‘slaw!…we couldn’t have had a more wonderful time at the MSI Barbecue last night!
It was all smiles and full mouths (but luckily not simultaneously) at the barbecue yesterday! With plenty of good food to eat and interesting people to talk to, last night was a hoot (even for the vegetarians, like myself!)
This morning we had another special activity, taking a trip down to the Japanese Garden at Morven! That garden never ceases to amaze. With its imported trees and woods from Japan and it’s large boulders taken out of the mountains of the Blue Ridge– you feel as though you’ve stepped out of Charlottesville and onto the cool, peaceful, mountainous terrain of Japan!
Once again, Japanese Garden Curator, Meg Faison, led us on an inspiring and informative tour around the garden.
Lastly, I had to include this one since it’s filling the air with such a lovely smell…
