Random Photo


If you ever find yourself going over the Old Stone Bridge, turn right and you will find one of the prettiest walks along the river (Bull Run).  It is one of our favorite places.  Only a few weeks ago the Bluebells were in bloom.  On this walk it was time for the buttercups to shine, they were everywhere.  The day was gorgeous, around 70 degrees with no humidity, certainly wonderful weather for getting some exercise.

  1. Dear Denise, unfortunately we had a very humid couple of days here in Montreal...I just love to take long walks but the humidity makes it dangerous for me. Beautiful photo, I love the lush green!

  14. What a lovely place to stroll and sounds like the perfect day for it. We have a famous Old Stone Bridge in Stillwater, Minnesota, where Mn Civil War soldiers walked across as well. It's pretty much on private property now, sadly.

  16. I love the green spaces along the Bull Run. I lived on the Bull run in the 1960s. We had an apartment in an old converted RR station. It's beautiful, but we also had wharf rats. They ran around the house at night. The ate my rolling pin. They ate wax paper. They ate soap bars. They ate onions. Those rats were scary.

    My great uncle Lorenzo was severely wounded In the first battle of Bull run,

    By the way, did you know Yankees called Bull Run, and the Southerners called it Manassas 1. I think I got that right. Of course what we call the French and Indian Wars, the British call the Seven Years War. The French call it something else. It's all in your perspective I suppose.
