Down By the River

Today was a beautiful warm day and I took a solo trip down to the canal walk at the James River to take a few outside hair shots.  If you haven't realized by now I love outdoor shots :) 

The outside shots at this location weren't hitting on nothing.  I looked up and saw this small pedestrian bridge under the freeway: 

So then next I got this bright idea to go up on this bridge and take a few pics overlooking the James River.  As you can see in the pic, the bridge is held up by those rope things that are attached to the freeway, and only those rope things.  Um, did I tell you I was afraid of heights?

In the pic below you can really get a good glimpse of this bridge. How did they do that?


Here is another shot of that bridge.  Yeah....

At this point I was feeling weak and nauseous. My life flashed in front of my eyes.  I remembered that bridge collapse a few years ago where a few people died in Mississippi. And then I had the nerve to look and take a picture of those rope things (yeah, I feel safe and secure):


After that I couldn't get back to the ground quick enough!   People were riding their bikes and going on lovey dovey strolls and this fool right here is scared for her life!   So much for that idea!  I saw this pretty bush/tree and settled for that:


Next I moseyed on down to the Canal Walk.  They had these cute little signs up explaining what happened in Richmond during the Civil War.

There were more but you get the idea.

Alright, now for the hair pics!  Last Wednesday I put in a fresh set of twists, so they are about 6 days old in this picture.  To preserve them I just wrap them up in my silk scarf every night and let the mist from the shower wake them up in the morning.

I know variety is the spice of life, but right now I am just really digging my two strand twists right now!  Next styling session I am going to try to do something different to make things more interesting for you guys.  I know these two strands are getting kind of played.

Well anyway, I hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving!  Love ya and take care :)
