Last Sunday, we took the girls to Pen Druid brewery in Sperryville, Virginia. It’s not cheap, but I really like their wild IPAs. Also, it’s a family-friendly brewery as they have blocks for kids to play with inside and, even better, a nice grassy field next to the Thornton River.

Cara, my youngest daughter, alerted us to an unusual bug she found in the grass. I had never seen one like this before so took a quick picture. Shortly after posting on Facebook, my friends Donn A. and David C. identified it as a dobsonfly.
