Say what you will about West Virginia--I love it! My dad's side of the family goes waaay back in those hills, so sometimes I have to stop by and visit. Here are pics from the October trip:I got a fishing rod. Yes! This is the view from "The Viewhouse," which was known as "The Blue House" when I was younger (and before it was renovated to get this amazing in-the-clouds feel). We rented it for the weekend and loved it. We also got to go kayaking and fishing with our friend Pete, a gentleman artist fisherman. I read for part of the time... Cassie Clare's books rule! Little did we know that these cows, so calmly posing for a photo with Dave, would break out of their fence during dinner at my cousin Molly Moss's house and we'd have to impromptu herd them! F-U-N. Our friend Pete, mentioned above, is an amazing artist who's been making fire paintings. He's having a show in NYC in December, so come if you can! How cool is this? Happy Weekend, everyone!
