So far November has been the month we are being paid back for all the crappy weather we endured last spring, except for today of course, because it rains. In my copious amounts of free time (sarcasm, y'all), I've taken advantage of the mild weather to plant even more rows of garlic, haul rocks from recently cleared land and walk and play with Annie. I have taken few area photographs which causes me much angst when I have time to think about it so I just won't think about it. Above is a sun dog I saw several days ago.
A couple of points of interest:
First, the Watauga County Historical Society has completed its largest undertaking thus far, a book entitled The Architectural History of Watauga County, North Carolina :
"The book is derived from several
architectural surveys conducted in the past, one of which originated
with the Watauga County Historical Society in the early 1980s. Around
600 photographs and architectural descriptions along with a history
essay comprise the volume, which is nearly 400 pages long."
Look to buy the book at the Jones House and the University Bookstore on campus and there is a link on the website with more purchasing information.
Next, and I hope this embedding stuff works, is a fabulous video made by Matt Powell for the Watauga County Tourism Development Authority. My interest is mostly that it was shot almost exclusively on the Canon 5D Mark2. I'm such a photo geek. In any case, it is a 3 minute film which showcases our area's outdoor recreation possibilities. Great job, Matt!
