Vultures and Beauty Amongst Us!

Posted on October 23, 2012 by Bedfordlandings

This morning I went for a walk and counted 14 vultures sitting in trees at the end of the runway.  What does it mean?  After the presidential debate last night, I had several captions but thought in the spirit of working together, I would let you draw your own conclusions!

What are they waiting for?

We still are working on the construction loan and our second appraisal is in the works.  Pray and cross your fingers and toes!

In the meantime, I had my scene shooting for Wish You Well yesterday and Jack’s scene is next week.  Jack went with me to share in the torture of getting up at 3 am and driving to Giles County to be there by 6:15 am.  We were shooting a cemetery scene on a lovely farm.  The fall leaves were beautiful but my feet froze in the 40 degree morning air!  It was pretty cool being on set with Ellen Berstyn (from the Exorcist), MacKenzie Foy (from Twilight Saga), and Josh Lucas (just plain cute).

The movie takes place in 1940, so the look was coûte frump!  Check it out!

ImageAfter Jack’s return from his Walk to Emmaus (a spiritual retreat), he and I hiked a 3875 feet  rocky trail called Sharp Top at the Peaks of Otter.  It was an activity in stamina and climbing ability.  The trail was 1.5 miles long but rigorous.  It was so nice seeing families, kids, and dogs outside on the trail!  Everyone seemed so gleeful- even us, until the next day when our feet ached!

I love to experiment with photography even though all I have is a cheap digital pocket camera.  Here are some of my favorites from that hike.

This is where we started viewing from the top.
You can see how rocky the trail is.
There are 2 mountains in the Peaks of Otter. We hiked Sharp Top. This is Flat Top. Who wants to join us to hike that one?
You could see great distances from the top!
There were cool rock formations all along the trail.
Trees were growing around rocks, and rocks were growing around trees! How old must some of these rocks be?
Jack didn’t know why I would want to take this, but I thought it was a cool design.


This was my favorite photo–the smooth bark of Mountain Laurel.

Enjoy your Fall!

Great pictures. Can’t wait to see you in action. Looking forward to this weekend and hope you are. Just let me know what time you will arrive here in Raleigh, where you want to go eat, bring the rest of your registration money, put on a happy smile and kick back. Did you get to see the program Friday night live streamed? They will love you. Lewanna
