Traveling...Always an Adventure!

We love to travel!

31Nov-2 

Each time we make the trip between our condo in North Carolina and our home in Florida we marvel at the sites we see along the way!

We saw more of the cotton fields in Georgia being harvested!

And I said....out loud....something else I would love to see!

And is that it ahead of us?

I think it IS!

A crop duster passed over us again and again!

I was aiming my camera out every window until.....

Really great shot of the crop duster...right place, right time. Made me think of planes, trains and automobiles.

Mary said...

Wow, you should be VERY proud of that last shot -- fabulous!!! Thanks for sharing the sights with us at MM. :)

Carol @ There's Always Thyme to Cook said...

Great shots! Especially the crop duster, so cool to see that up close like that!

podso said...

wow that is a wonderful photo of the crop duster! Glad you had such a nice drive back down to the winter place!

Prims and Annies said...

That picture of the crop duster is awesome...there is a big cotton field right across the highway and one that borders our property on the side of the house. I always get nervous when they spray the defoliate on the cotton to kill the leaves. Imagine you are standing at the window watching and the plane is coming toward your house (he is flying pretty low) and when he is about 50 feet away he pulls the plane up and goes over the house. Great Picture!!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Fabulous photos of the crop duster, Diane! What are they spraying on the cotton? I wish I could touch some of that raw cotton to see what it feels like. Enjoy Florida!

ellen b. said...

What fun to have 2 homes to enjoy! So looks like you might be enjoying the holidays in Florida?! Blessings!

Natasha in Oz said...

That was a great shot! You did well.

Thanks for the virtual tour. I love seeing pictures from everyone's travels.

Thanks also for your very sweet birthday wishes! That really meant so much to me.

Best wishes for a great week,
Natasha.

Good shot of the crop dusting plane.
Many people don't realize that the dust sprayed on crops will travel on the wind and can cause health problems.
We lived for 10 years near the famous Holland Marsh (Ontario) and both our daughters became asthmatic - the doctor said there was a high rate of respiratory problems in the area from the spraying. Who knew?

Fabulous shot. Perfect timing.

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

great shot - we don't see crop dusters very often. How far of a drive is it between your 2 homes?

Vee said...

I didn't even know that crops were dusted this way anymore. (They aren't in ME. Big old tractors that look like giant bugs do all the crop dusting.) It must've been fun to see!

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

Oh you got some great shots! I bet it is such a beautiful drive!!

Rajesh said...

Wonderful shots from your trip.

Shannon@Cozy Home Scenes said...

You and Mr. Lavender must be wearing out the highways 'cause you're always going somewhere ! I think it's great that the two of you have such good times together. I have never seen cotton growing but I have seen a crop duster but not as closely as you did. Great shot!-----Shannon

We love to travel too. And your photos of crop duster reminds me when I first saw it. We were nearby a potato farm and the plane is doing it's loop and I took a lot of photos after that I itched, hehe. Thanks for sharing and happy MOnday!

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

What a great "commute" you have. As always..., thanks for sharing the journey!!

What beautiful autumn views while traveling you had. Magnificent on the photo of the crop duster. That one was hard to get I know.

That was really a great shot!
No wonder you enjoy your trip so much - the scenery is lovely.

HOW I do love visiting you!!

Dianne said...

Great shots!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

How fun! Love the crop duster pics -- I've never seen cotton in a field, just in a jar in the bathroom by my makeup!

Tammy said...

Great shot! I love to watch crop dusters! I know they're working, and it can be dangerous, but it looks like a free form roller coaster.. such fun!!

Debbiedoo's blogging and blabbing said...

What awesome snaps Diane. You have a beautiful ride indeed.

Jann Olson said...

Wow! Great shot indeed!!

Denise said...

Beautiful photos; what a lovely road trip on an awesome day! :) I would love to travel down that road someday, and see the cotton fields in Georgia!

Thanks for sharing,
Denise

I love travelling,when I was living in Sicily every sunday I was convincing my boyfriend to visit a different city and I like very much to get photos during the trip.
