7.17.19 … “The moon is a friend for the lonesome to talk to.” – Carl Sandburg

Adventuring with the Big One …

My sister joined me in Asheville for 3 days and we wore ourselves out adventuring. Here is what we did:

July 14 … drove up from Marietta via the Back Way … Canton, Cherry Log, Blue Ridge, skirting along the Nantahala, Lake Junaluska …

July 15 … Pisgah Inn for Breakfast, Folk Art Center on the Parkway, First Baptist of Asheville labyrinth, Publix (for our easy Salmon dinner in a bag), nap, another drive on the Parkway where we picked up chocolate silk pie for dessert), dinner on the porch …

July 16 … leftovers from yesterday’s Pisgah Inn Breakfast, UNC Asheville labyrinth, architecture tour of Asheville (short) (Buncombe County Courthouse, Asheville City Hall, Basilica of St.Lawrence, Kress Building, S&W Building), then on to Malaprop’s Bookstore and Hunter & Coggins Clothing Co, a favorite of MS’s husband, and White Duck Taco at its new Riverside location for lunch. And then a cabin nap … Next up, Carl Sandburg’s Flat Rock home and his wife’s goat barn and dairy and Appalachian Ridge Cidery (MS really, really liked their sherry). We closed with dinner at the Pisgah Inn (walnut encrusted trout with blueberry butter and chicken pot pie) and a spectacular moonrise! And I must mention the beautiful bride and handsome groom who must have married at about 7, walked up to the restaurant and waited for their corner table like the rest of us by visiting the gift shop and then ate dinner, just the two of them, watching the full moon rise over the mountains…

July 17 … returned to Marietta via the Parkway, Brevard, Rodsman, Cherokee Foothills Trail and I85 …

We couldn’t fit much more in in 3 days!
