Gregg and I dropped off his van at the dealership in Manassas tonight and we decided to take the opportunity to go for a nice walk which took us over the battlefield. On our trip out we passed four small herds of deer, about 30 in total. It was a good time to spot them as the sun was going down. Driving out of the town there always seem be be several on the NOVA campus within sight of the road, and tonight was no exception. Gregg pulled in so that we could take some photographs and these were the best ones I could get.
This is the statue of Stonewall Jackson. We always pass him at the beginning of our walk. I have shared him before on another post some time ago.
Gregg took this lovely photo of the Old Stone House, which we drive by on our way into Manassas. It is hard to see as it is the twilight hour.
I heard this bird up in the tree but I'm afraid I don't know enough about the shapes of birds to identify him. I wish I recognized more bird calls. Something to think about in the future.
No fabulous sunset tonight but the skies were still very pretty. We met a nice couple from 'up north' as they put it. They had just arrived in the area and were taking a walk here before checking into their hotel. We were asked several questions about this area and as their visit was short they wanted to know what we would recommend. I told them about the air and space museum on the way to the airport, which was in the general direction of their hotel. They were interested in Washington DC and Gregg told them about all the museums. We made a few more suggestions before we went our separate ways. We left them trying to read some of the historical markers and they were having difficulty because of the fading light.
You can just make out the shape of the Henry House in the photo below.
It was getting darker and we didn't want to risk tripping over our feet if we stayed any longer, and we made our way back to the car, first taking a couple of more shots of those pretty skies.
