Walking and spending time in nature has really helped me in the past few weeks. So, I wanted to gather my most favorite photos in one post and create a lovely space, on oasis of beauty and calm, that we can always go back to.
This is the joy of photography. It captures an elusive, fleeting moment, allowing us to grasp it and keep it forever.
I hope you like them, and I hope they bring you a little bit of joy and serenity.
The Greenway follows the South River in downtown Waynesboro, VA, and is favored by most residents as the perfect place for a walk/jog.
The Ridgeview Park covers 85 acres and is home to several gardens (including a Botanical one), a public pool, a variety of nature trails and several athletic fields. Picnics, celebrations and local festivities are held here as well.
Sherando Lake Recreation Area is closed now but when open, makes for a great camping, hiking, fishing and family oriented area all throughout spring, summer and fall.
Frontier Culture Museum, located in Staunton, VA, is one of my most favorite plein-air, living history museums that I have ever visited. It provides many educational and hands-on activities for its visitors as well as an authentic glimpse into the settlers’ life in Shenandoah Valley.
I have 5 posts dedicated to the museum if you would like to learn more about it. You can check them out here.
Virginia is known for its farms, orchards, wineries and local breweries. Picking locally grown fruit is one of springtime’s fun (and delicious!) activity. Here, you can see my parents picking some strawberries from Critzer Family Farm, last year around this time.
Many, many moons ago I did a similar post, celebrating springtime’s arrival in my little Romanian hometown – you can check it out here.
Thank you for spending your day with me, on our impromptu trip around the parks of Waynesboro, Virginia, at Sherando Lake and Frontier Culture Museum (before it closed down).
