An early taste of spring
There is a park, just a few miles from my home, that sits on the cliffs overlooking the Appomattox River. If I put in here near home, it will take about 3 hours of leisurely paddling to get to the park. The photo above is of the signal tower used during the Civil War at Point of Rocks on the Appomattox. The spot where the tower stood is now thickly wooded and the land between the river and the road is home to a half dozen baseball diamonds. After my canoe trip, I'll sit on the cliffs where that tower could have stood and enjoy a couple of cold, well deserved beers and take in the now peaceful view of the river.
Ya'll have a good weekend!
Let's start the weekend with some bluegrass.
The Virginia Squires were a popular band during the 1980s. They were based out of Fredricksburg, Virginia and have now parted ways. Rickie Simpkins was a long time member of the "Tony Rice Unit", and has recently moved over to join the ranks of "Dave Parmley & Continental Divide". Ronnie Simpkins joined the "Seldom Scene" in 1995.
Longtime riders on the Bus know that my wife and I used to own a music shop and produce concerts. We still have a lot of CDs and books that were not sold when we closed shop. Once in a while I post some of our remaining stock on ebay. I try to post 20 or 30 items each week. Bid early and bid often.
