Getting through a long drive

On the long drive home from North Carolina, I needed help to get me through the trip.   The first help I got was something wonderful to look at,   most the trip was dotted with beautiful dogwood and red-bud trees.

This does not begin to capture the beauty of dogwoods.   The way their branches reach out in graceful horizontal clusters of white blooms is amazing.   Give me dogwoods any day!

The other help that got me through was gas station French vanilla cappuccino and fig newtons.

I do think I’ve managed to captured the beauty of a gas station cappuccino machine here, however.
