So we got home yesterday morning after a really fun week in the mountains of North Carolina. I personally was dreading our return because it tends to be about ten degrees cooler in NC and our last couple of days there were hot enough to warn us that Atlanta would not be so pleasant. And it is HOT here again with temps in the upper 90's each day! Tho not as hot as it is for my Texas friends......Anyway, I thought I share some pictures of our week.....
We were staying in Montreat which is just outside Black Mountain.....I've just about decided there is no such thing as a good picture of me anymore, lol!
Emmie taking a break on the way to Crabtree Falls....
Bill and Garrett at Crabtree Falls
This is my favorite picture I took- the sun was just starting to set and the fog had started to roll in.....I really think I could live in a place like this!
My nephey-poo Porter
Me and Emmie rollin' down the river
Garrett on the trail leaving Linville Falls
I thought this was so funny- we'd stopped for water on our way home, and I noticed this sign. After Bill, Emmie and I all took pictures, the store owner came stomping out to remove the lettering. Bill was wondering if we'd perhaps stumbled upon the secret of what makes North Carolina BBQ so good.....?
So that's what "I did for my Summer vacation" I probably won't have time for much painting this week with school starting next week and all the preps for the Saturday market. I'll try to catch some pictures of our garden to share updates and what progress I've made on the zinnia painting. It now has a background.....:)
