It started of wet in the North Carolina Mountains this morning, but by lunchtime it had cleared. It was a little windy, but if you were in the sun, out of the wind, it warmed up. We all enjoyed the first day of the very relaxing, no stress vacation.
We spent our afternoon in and around Blowing Rock, which is a very quaint town. We ate lunch there, but not at the restaurant we wanted as it was closed just for today 😦 (unusual for a Monday as they are usually closed Tuesday). The boys followed lunch up with dessert – ice cream from Kilwins.
We walked all the food off with some fun in the playground. Sean and I had a competition on the swing – I have not been on a swing in years….I was giggling like a school girl. We finished off the dat with a walk around Bass Lake. Beautiful day!!!
Here are today’s photographs.
