Our Journey of Thirty-two Sleeps: Sleep # 7

Sleep 7

After church, lunch and a short nap we took off for the Shenandoah Valley and foothills of the mountains. I am going to offer you photos and see for yourself  the beautiful sights of our wonderful visit.

We came upon three little houses in a row, which according to S. probably were slave quarters. As we drove a little further on we came upon the Primitive Baptist Church and according to the sign was founded in 1724. I have included two photos because both are wonderful views. After finding the church across the road from the houses, we are convinced this was an area where slaves lived, WORKED, and worshiped. The Primitive Baptist church advocates “intense conservatism” and simple forms  of worship taught in the bible (singing, praying and preaching) without any man-made inventions or additions.
I am reading the book WENCH and so this historical encounter becomes even more vivid.

And now the views of the Shenandoah Valley and foothills of the mountains.

And believe it or not tucked away in all of this rural beauty is elegant sleeping and eating. We came home had leftovers and slept most elegantly and comfortably.

    The color of the landscaping cannot be described. How beautiful–my favorite are the squared three story buildings (salt boxes?) what wonderful historical areas you are witnessing–R
