|Driving down to the Bend.|
|The place along Promised Land Road that my great grandfather Grace farmed.|
|A crossroads on the way to the Bend.|
|Almost to the river, the hunt club and old house in the distance.|
|The Stevens family about 1937.|
|Cousin Nancy in front.|
|From the same angle as the flood picture.|
|The inside is nearly wiped out.|
From there we went to my aunt and uncle's place a little further north. They have a new flock of chickens. Rhode Island Reds. Just like home!
And they have a new puppy, Cletus. Cletus and Clovis got to get to know each other.
Clovis taking his turn at the wheel.
And a few pictures of beautiful Gunston Hall in Virginia. I stopped at Dad's on the way home, and we visited George Mason's beautiful 1750s home. Mason was the father of the Bill of Rights and extremely concerned about preserving individual liberty. He drafted the Virginia Declaration of the Rights of Man, the first such statement that was later used in the U.S. Constitution and by the French for their Déclaration des droits de l'homme.
