And just like that, Summer's gone. The tobacco fields, once lush and leafy, are now lined with eerie naked stalks. Despite the lingering heat wave, you can still feel the crispy punch in the air. My brother and I have been taking Golden Hour walks to round out our days and begin quiet country evenings. A walk along the 'loop road' or down to the river might take us to a tobacco barn which also doubles as a deer antler shrine. If we turn our heads we might just see a young man out on a horse and cart, completely blissed out. Here's to more exploring, and lots of hot chocolates to come.
