“One day, I will stop by… have a look around…” Sitting at the traffic light, with my blinker on to turn left. Looking directly ahead at the historic grounds and the small gravestones peeking above the grass.
“Why not today?”
Blinker off. Drove straight ahead into the small lot. Exploration time.
I pass the historic landmark road plaque nearly everyday. The plaque refers to the grounds of Christ Episcopal Church, established in 1711, and the church that was constructed a century later. “Old Brick” is nestled right alongside several busy roads – tucked back behind some large poplar and oak trees. You pass by it on the way to the market… the post office… the library.
After a lovely day with my mom (we spent it searching for a few key pieces at local thrift/consignment shops), we also stopped by “Old Brick” to walk the grounds of the old church, and the adjacent cemetery. Luckily, I had my new camera with me to capture the moments.
I felt like I discovered a little gem – so close. I had every intention of stopping *some day* but having lived in this area for nearly nine years, I still hadn’t done it. What places are on your “someday” list? Do you think you could find a moment to explore and document that place within the next few days?
