A drive from Knoxville, Tennessee, to Greenbelt, Maryland, up Interstate 81 or old Highway 11 can make for a delightful trip: rolling fields and barns compete with historic homes to dot the fresh, early summer landscape with the usual pretty sights. But sometimes some surprising extras crop up, and we’re sharing a few we saw this week for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra, Extra.
1. Huge, weathered guitar along Highway 81 near Bristol, Tennessee. (You can see it from the rest area across the street.)
2. Pink Cadillac Diner along Highway 11 (Lee Highway) near Natural Bridge, Virginia. The restaurant is pink, the Cadillac parked out front is pink, but King Kong is raging black! An extra treat, don’t you think?
3. An iconic ice cream shop — Carl’s— where folks in Fredericksburg, Virginia, form long lines to order the only three flavors on the menu: vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. (And no wonder. It’s EXTRA creamy!)
4. And at our B&B in Fredericksburg, Virginia, (Lavender Heights), this little extra flew in. Maybe the birds thought they had exclusive rights to the house in the cottage gardens, but not so much. A wasp was looking for a place to call home, too! (Just roll out an extra cot?)
