First off, the drive in, was one beautiful ride...I always forget how pretty the mountains are, and believe me, they are much prettier in person than on my camera!
|Country Road....take me home....to the place I belong!|
|The 'pet' carp!|
|Smith Mountain Dock---very vintage!|
|The Vibe! Everyone is your friend :)|
One of the apparent traditions is to feed the carp with popcorn and to put peanut butter on your toes and let the carp suck it off. I found that i was a little skiddish about my toes, but I quite enjoyed them sucked on the heel of my feet. Here is a video (sorry it is sideways) of the swarm of carp that come when food is involved (I asked one of the guys there to get a video of the carp sucking on my feet, but it did not turn out...so next time I will have to re-do that!).
We also got to see the SML Dam:
|The whole reason the Lake was made: Hydro-power!|
|This house was designed by a cathedral architect. And the picture does not do it justice, the tree is covering a lot of the house, it was HUGE!!!|
|We were a little far away!|
|National Park--so no one can ever build on that mountain!!!|
