Pennys Bend, Eno River, NC
This image is a bit lighter than the original, but I purposefully kept the feeling of the piece on the light side to represent the day we took the grands for a walk along this part of the Eno River. I am tending to get a bit heavy-handed and muddy lately, so I suppose I was trying extra-hard to have that NOT happen! LOL
The Eno River Association has as its goal to purchase all the land adjacent to the length of the river in order to keep the river healthy and non-developed. This particular part of the Eno is managed by the Botanical Garden at UNC-Chapel Hill -- and it's really lovely with its rocks and clear water. We saw quite a number of folks fishing it during our walk last week. My husband and I were married on a different piece of this same river, so it's especially meaningful to us.
It's been delightfully RAINING this weekend -- so I know the river, as well as this dry land and our water reserves -- is being filled once again. Thank heavens!
