Three days a week I take an early morning walk along the little road that provides access to our residence and to the other two homes on Hopes Way.

This is a view to the north, looking toward David and Betty Schutte's home at the end of the lane. To the north and west is the beautiful Blue Ridge. It is a clear, cold morning. You can just see the low hanging ground fog beyond the home which burns off as the sun rises.

This is the scene that greets us each morning from our bedroom window as we look east toward the sunrise. The trees, now bare of leaves as winter approaches, make lace-like patterns against the dawning light.
