The {Serenity} Project – Sunset on the Blue Ridge Parkway

Last week we went to Craggy Gardens on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  I wanted to see the rhododendron blooms and thought they might be at their peak.  We were just a tad early for the blooms although there were a few bushes that had bloomed already.  We took a picnic dinner to eat after we hiked to the pinnacle.  It was so nice and peaceful to be at the top surrounded by mountains.

As the late afternoon turned into early evening, I was glad to see that the notorious fog was not going to be around.  So I convinced my companion to stay a little longer and watch the sunset.  After all, I had just fed him this wonderful meal of cold chicken and potato salad.

We made our way down from the pinnacle and proceeded to a nice spot just beyond the parking lot with this magnificent view.  As the sun began to drop and make it’s way behind the mountains I felt my serenity.
