Drive through the country

Yesterday I decided to drive Hwy 14 from just north of Montgomery back home to Auburn, instead of I-85. It definitely took longer, but what I experienced was well-worth the extra time in the car. Driving through the country in the south with the radio up and the windows down is something everyone must do at some point in their life. Yes it’s hot, but when the breeze dries the sweat on your skin – something magical happens. I can’t quite explain it.

Just look at those beautiful green fields and that gorgeous blue sky!

I even found a vineyard that just happened to be open yesterday afternoon. Free tastings? Why yes, I don’t mind if I do!
