I decided to go via the Blue Ridge Parkway, The Scenic Route:
I've got photos from the "dash cam":
Coming out of Gatlinburg, I began noticing signs from last year's big fire:
There may be a sad memory quilt somewhere in here:
My favorite things about the mountains are the tunnels...
And the mountain streams:
Wow!! The temperature dropped when I stopped for this "selfie":
The bright blue and yellow specks upstream are kids. Mom offered to spare me from only having a (not great) selfie picture:
No one was along to refuse a stop at a Scenic Overlook:
Amazing how the view changes with just a few steps:
Several shots from The Last Tree Standing...
At least, I think that's what it was called:
Oh! A larger mountain stream, closer to the road:
I'm getting better at this "selfie" thing:
Entering Cherokee, North Carolina:
Delicious!! Just like old times:
A view of the Paul's Family Restaurant sign:
It doesn't look like much, but as soon as I passed by, memories of our Cherokee family vacation came flooding back and I just HAD to eat where we ate on that trip:
New to me:
Aiming for a mountain view:
Lake J, as seen from the golf course across the road:
Arrival at the classroom in Beginnings Quilt Shop:
Britt is certainly making progress on her class sample:
Sue is getting individual attention from teacher, Patsy Thompson:
OK, so none of us actually drank this stuff...
This was all for Hilary's benefit - to see what she was missing:
Until next time...
Quilting adventures await!!!
