A Special Place

Everyone has a special place. For some, it's the house or farm or town where they grew up. For others, it's a vacation spot where fond memories were/are made. And for still others, it's the place where they lay their heads each night, the place they call home in the present.

Many people think of Highland County, Virginia as a special place. The ones who were lucky enough to be born and raised here will always refer to it as home, no matter where they live. The ones like me, who moved here from somewhere else decades ago also think of it as home, even though we still have that "home place" where we grew up that will always be special, too. There are some who, for one reason or another, can't make the move to live in Highland County full-time, but spend weekends and every other chance they get nestled in among our mountains and friendly folks. And then there are those who pass through, maybe only once, for a few hours or days, and never return, but wish they could.

If one of these groups describes you or anyone you know, there's a new blog/website just for you! It's called See Highland County and the format is very simple: every Tuesday a new photo taken somewhere in Highland County will be posted. Just to enjoy. Just because Highland County is a beautiful place. Just because those of us who live here don't always have or take the time to relish it. Just because everyone who loves it can't always be here as much as they would like. There won't be much to read; just a sentence or two to give the location of the photo, so it won't be a blog that will take up much of our precious time. Instead, it's a very-mini vacation to Highland, right there on your computer, iPad, or phone every Tuesday. Give it a try by clicking HERE. (If, for some reason, the link doesn't work, the address is:

    Please visit the blog a time or two. If you like it, become a follower and share it with anyone and everyone. Don't forget to check back every Tuesday for a new photo. If you have a website or blog, you can "grab our button" and put it on your site so even more people can enjoy our Highland County home with just one click of the mouse.

     This little corner of the state has been called "Virginia's Best-Kept Secret." The time has come, though, to share this one. It's just too sweet to keep to ourselves any longer.
