The formerly lush, green soybean fields are now yellow, soon to be brown, soon to be harvested.
These soybean fields are located near North.
North is a place, a location, a spot on the map, a post office (and at one point a store). North is also the name of a river that runs through here.
The fact that it's also a direction makes things interesting, particularly when conversing to outsiders--such as an editor sitting in South Carolina, for example, who asked me to confirm or correct the location of a place once known as Club 14. I said it was located on Route 14 at North. She thought for sure that was a typo. But Club 14 was located on Route 14 at North. At the spot on the map called North.
No, not a typo, just another little Mathews County quirk.
We do quirky right.
