Nov 5, 2018 - The Promontory (10/29 - 10/31/18)

We arrived on Monday afternoon. But when we opened the doors, the whole place was covered in a whitish mold. We couldn't stay in the house, it was so upsetting. I took down all the curtains and washed them. Tim made up a bleach solution and sprayed everything in the house. We stayed in the RV down at the bottom of the hill next to the train track, where we always park it. The next day Tim sprayed it down with another bleach solution. I went to Lynchburg and bought buckets of Damp Rid to leave there while we were away. The bleach cleaned all...

Jul 24, 2018 - Our Cabin in the Woods - The Promontory (5/13 - 7/18/18)

Since I am so far behind on my updates, I will just kinda skim over all the things we did while here at our wonderful cabin in the woods, A.K.A my 'happy place'. We had breakfast at Tim's sister's (Joanne) with the family before we left. When we arrived at the promontory, everything was in great shape. Plus, we found that we had a nest of visitors, Eastern Phoebes. The next was in the rafters just outside the door. Every time we went in or out the door, the bird flew off the nest. Sorry, but we have to! The weekend of the 18th/19th, we...

Oct 18, 2017 - Our cabin in the woods - The Promontory (9/22 - 10/24/17)

Back at our wonderful cabin in the woods (i.e. my happy place!). We spent about a month here enjoying the beauty of nature and taking a few side trips. Although, it is often difficult just to come down off the hill! This is a beautiful time of year with the leaves changing colors. We took trips a couple of times to see the leaves on the Blue Ridge Parkway, but there wasn't a lot of color. I think the weather must have just been a bit off this year. We had to make a couple of purchases for our little cabin. Our heater had to be replaced...

Jun 4, 2017 - Buffalo Station (5/14 - 5/30/17)

We have a great little cabin the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains on the James River. It is actually exactly across the river from James River State Park. This little cabin on the hill is my "happy place"! It is so peaceful and easy to enjoy. We built this cabin ourselves. It has no running water and no electricity, but it is paradise to us. The ice chest is our refrigerator, the generator (behind the wooden box) is our electricity, the yellow igloo on the left side of the house is our water into the kitchen sink, the blue containers...

Oct 31, 2016 - Buffalo Station - our cabin (9/9/16)

We arrived at our place in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We have a small cabin in the woods right on the James River. It is actually just across the river from the James River State Park. We built the cabin ourselves back in 2006. That is our little piece of paradise. There is also an old farmhouse on the property. We are selling it to a friend of ours and we are helping to renovate it. We just love being here. Our cabin sits on top of a hill. We have named it 'The Promontory'. We can look right down the James River and it is...
