Sunday Afternoon Drive

Another thing crossed off my Summer Fun To Do List!
A Sunday Afternoon drive.
If you want to know what southwestern Ohio looks like in the
summertime, here you go...
















The views are typical for Ohio, but the temperatures certainly are not!
We're dipping into the 50's at night an reaching 70 during the day.
 No humidity.  Incredible. 
 We've started our third week of this and it is wonderful! 
Makes for a perfect leisurely drive!

    1. It is beautiful...but every part of our country is in it's own way! Like I always say, but we don't have palm trees or mountains! ha.

    I love Ohio in the summer. These pictures are just gorgeous.
    We're having the same sort of weather in Michigan. It can stay like this!

  15. Beautiful! It looks very much like NW PA. Our weather has been the same -- it really does feel a lot like September. I'm enjoying the cooler temps and low humidity but just hope winter doesn't come early as well!

  16. I love these photos Betsy! It reminds me of when I was in Ohio visiting Dayton, everywhere we were driving was filled with corn fields but they were beautiful cornfields. I actually had a discussion about Ohio recently with a lady who was born in America but now lives over here along similar lines, such a beautiful little state in general.

  17. Yes Definitely looks like my corner of the world too...just a couple of hours north of you. Lovely Leisurely Sunday afternoon rides remind me of my parents...as it seemed we did that often growing up. Thanks for sharing.

  18. Apart from the American Flag symbols, Southwestern Ohio is identical to Southwestern Ontario!
    Of course I'm partial to the cow-shot, but I love the road stretching out beneath the dappled light of the trees.

  19. I love the farmland along with the barns, silos, cows, and corn. I've plenty of memories of driving through Ohio in late summer (on our way to Pensacola, FL usually). I love NY's farmland too. That's where Hannah and I were yesterday, but she was driving and there's not much stopping her.

    1. So do they look the same...Ohio and NY?

  20. I can see much of that here
    Most is around I fear
    And no humidity is great as well
    Sure we'll pay for it soon at our cell
