Today, was the most amazing day here in the North Carolina mountains. Perfectly clear, I do not think we saw a cloud at all today.
We spent most of the day along the Blue Ridge Parkway, visiting Grandfather Mountain and the Moses Cone Mansion – Arts and Craft Center. It was for sure cold up at Grandfather mountains but wonderfully warm in the sun along the rest of the parkway. Boy, are we now exhausted.
Lunch was great!!! We had tried to go The Village Cafe in Blowing Rock twice now, but always seem to land up there when they were closed. Today, we had success – and so worth the wait. It was a small Victorian cottage converted into the cafe, surrounded by a wild garden….and the food was amazing.
Photographs of the day are below.
