“Place conspires with the artist. We are surrounded by our own story, we live and move in it.
It is through place that we put out roots.” - Eudora Welty

A winter walk in Dismal Swamp #1
Washington Ditch - Great Dismal Swamp, Suffolk, Virginia
Thursday after Christmas found me headed for North Carolina for a couple of days to explore the Great Dismal Swamp and surrounding area. Our intention was to put the boat in Lake Drummond and explore by boat, but those plans were stymied. More about that tomorrow.
There is no shortage of trails through the swamps and even though we did not get the boat in the water we spent an enjoyable day hiking. With some sun breaking through the overcast from time to time and temperatures around fifty degrees, it was a pleasant day to be in the woods. And we had the place all to ourselves.
