A Trip to Alabama

I am in Alabama, visiting my son who has a birthday this week. It was a very uneventful trip down from Virginia. Interstates seem to be lined with trees, trees, trees. Not much to see. That's too bad. But, I did get a couple good shots on the road yesterday.

We had lunch at a rest stop somewhere in North Carolina. The food was so yummy and my body enjoyed the rest it got. That's my daughter and son-in-law making their sandwiches.

At a nearby table, a bluebird was having his lunch. I don't see many bluebirds around my apartment so this was fun, watching him hop around with the insect in his beak.

 I have done no editing to this picture. And, I took it from the back seat of our vehicle, through a dirty windshield. That sunset was unbelievable. The sun actually was bright red (showed up white in the picture). I don't think I've ever seen a more pretty one.

 As we drove farther and farther south, the sun went down and the moon came out. It had a very distinctive face on it's surface but it doesn't show up here. 

There will be more to share as the week goes on. The guys are working on rebuilding a deck for my son. But, there will be lots of fun stuff going on, too.
