Hooded mergansers

I only see hooded mergansers a few times each winter & this is the first time that they've been close enough for a photo on a sunny day.

Valentines Post Office

We made the short drive up to Valentines Virginia so our cards could be among the 20,000 cards that get mailed from there with the cool Valentine post mark. The post office/general store is very cute!

Check out the WRAL news story about the post office.

Small town sights

Driving through Littleton a couple of weeks ago, I asked my husband to stop the car so I could take a photo of the horse coming down the road.

The horse was not one bit camera shy. He came right up to the car window for a close up. I'm glad I hadn't opened the window.
