#SWF: Price Lake BRPW in NC

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Last Saturday’s drive took us back to Boone, North Carolina where we got on the Blue Ridge Parkway. I was surprised to see the beginning of nature’s wardrobe change.

Price Lake on the BRPW located south of Boone, NC.

The cool evenings and warm days have stimulated an early glimpse of fall’s foliage for the abundant of visitors. If this keeps up, then the colors will peak sooner than expected. Geez, I cannot believe it’s October, can you?

What is autumn revealing in your part of the country?

In case you missed the news, I’m taking a wee break this month. I scheduled my photo post ahead with the anticipation that you would stop by. Let me say, Thank you for making me apart of your day and although, I’m unplugged I will return visits to anyone who leaves a comment.  Until we meet on the other side of the lens next, have a fototastic day!

Window Box in North Carolina inspires All I Can Do Is Write About song

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

The “Window Box” photo inspired this morning’s Wayback Wednesday music choice. This 70s American rock band has deep, deep southern grass roots and it’s clearly obvious in a many of their songs. This song speaks to me today with the lines of:

Did you ever see the beauty of the hills of Carolina 
Or the sweetness of the grass in Tennessee

“All I Can Do Is Write About It” lyrics

Well this life that I’ve lead has took me everywhere
There ain’t no place I ain’t never gone
But its kind of like the saying that you heard so many times
Well there just ain’t no plae like home
Did you ever see a she-gator protect her young
Or a fish in a river swimming free
Did you ever see the beauty of the hills of Carolina
Or the sweetness of the grass in Tennessee
And Lord I can’t make any changes
All I can do is write ’em in a song
I can see the concrete slowly creepin’
Lord take me and mine before that comes

Do you like to see a mountain stream a-flowin’
Do you like to see a youngun with his dog
Did you ever stop to think about, well, the air your breathin’
Well you better listen to my song
And Lord I can’t make any changes
All I can do is write ’em in a song
I can see the concrete slowly creepin’
Lord take me and mine before that comes

I’m not tryin’ to put down no big cities
But the things they write about us is just a bore
Well you can take a boy out of ol’ Dixieland
But you’ll never take ol’ Dixie from a boy
And Lord I can’t make any changes
All I can do is write ’em in a song
I can see the concrete slowly creepin’
Lord take me and mine before that comes
‘Cause I can see the concrete slowly creepin’
Lord take me and mine before that comes

North Carolina Countryside

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Somewhere along the countryside in western North Carolina mountains near Boone.

James Taylor’s spent his boyhood years in Chapel Hill, North Carolina which is east of Boone about 160 miles and I thought his 1968 song, Carolina In My Mind, is well suited for my theme today.
