While on a photography excursion along the back roads of our lovely Shenandoah Valley we passed an idyllic stream and swimming hole, secluded well away from pubic view. A secret place. After daughter Elise took this splendid shot, she remarked on how the tree reminded her of the one in an original illustration of Eeyore. And she’s right. Who knew? The Hundred Acre Woods is right here. All we need to complete this scene is Eeyore.
Here’s the Original Tree by Ernest Shepard, British artist/illustrator 1879-1976.
