Everyone likes a big front porch. There’s something about them that lowers your blood pressure and makes you want to slow down. Add a nice rocking chair and a beautiful view to the mix and you have a great combination for a relaxing evening. Now, where’s that bowl of ice cream?

This is another view from Grave’s Mountain Lodge in Virginia. Instead of only taking some pictures, I’m going to have to actually stay there sometime.
