Yesterday was beautiful. It was about 40 degrees in the morning but nearly 70 by the middle of the afternoon. After getting veggies, dairy, and our turkey at the farmer’s market for Thanksgiving, Matt thought we could enjoy the weather by visiting Huntley Meadows, a protected wildlife area just off US 1 in the Fairfax County part of Alexandria.
It was really pretty, though you can imagine how much prettier it would have been a few weeks ago before most of the leaves came off the trees. It’s a peaceful place, save for everyone’s little kids they’d brought along. (Lizzie, for example, went into a total fit after she learned that not all parks have playgrounds.)
Matt had his camera and fancy telephoto lens with him. I was on Lizzie Wrangling Duty and snapped some photos using my phone when she was busy looking the plants and critters. These, as I’m sure is obvious, are all my photos.
