Rumor has it that there are some notable residents of Smith Mountain Lake, but one that has recently become a certifiable national celebrity is “Will-hay Nelson.”
Will-hay is a sculpture made from hay bales, a creation of local farmer Beth Bays, who makes a fresh artwork every year.
You can read more about her work here.
Our family was supposed to be on the road to visit far-away folks today, but an under-the-weather husband gave the kids and me an opportunity to go visit Will-hay for ourselves.
He’s out in a beautiful setting.
And is undeniably impressive!
And the SML Coffeehouse is on the way, so we were well fortified with coffee and apple cider donuts.
