Down Bavon

This shot does not do this painting justice.
I bought it when I was at Virginia Blogfest way back in July.
It was hanging on the wall opposite me while we lunched
That place (the inn) deserves a full post,
but today, we are going to focus on this paradise:
"Bavon's Special Light."
Bavon is where she lives.
Home of the best deviled eggs, succotash and hush puppies
on the planet.
I may or may not have eaten all these in one sitting....
Anyway, if you have never been there,
go to the Chesapeake Bay.
And just take it all in.
It is a magical place...

"the earth is not forever
islands of the Chesapeake
slip into to memory"

She also makes the best fried fish ever oh, and pasta salad. And cheese platters, and pretty much everything.

Love that painting.

Its a gorgeous painting ... how wonderful it looks framed and hung! Cant wait to see it in person again.

Just beautiful!

You're right. This photo doesn't do the painting justice. It's not your photography; mine turned out with the same colors here.
That painting is mesmerizing.

If there is another blogfest next year, I hope to be brave enough to invite myself along, I have followed you and Daryl for a long time.

LOVE the picture, love that you bought it, love that you posted it, and love the shout-out to our Bavon Blister, queen of the cheese platters, Bloody Marys, and bracelets.

So, where's the context picture of where "Down Bavon" is hanging in the home of MPM? Love the quote - it is so true.
