Well I just did it.....been contemplating heading to the Mountains of NC for a little while now and I just booked our rooms for this weekend. WOOOO HOOOO. Now I'm not a mountain girl, but Miss Tara wants to visit, so, why not. Everyone needs a little get away every now and then. Boone here we come!
Not sure where we'll start....Grandfather Mountain is a beautiful site and so is Blowing Rock. Also Linville Caverns are just up the road and so is Tweetsie Railroad. Gonna leave early enough Friday morning to be able to get there and still have time to take in the area. It's about 6 hours from home. Up 40 to Winston Salem (RJR Tobacco country and home of the Wake Forest Deacons) then hit 421 to Boone (Appalachian State Univ.).
I said a while back that we needed to quit lazying around and take little get aways. That's what I'm gonna plan to do. We'll see how it goes.
September I'm thinking of a trip either to Charlotte, Richmond or Williamsburg to one of the theme parks.
October & November will be busy weekends with Nutcracker Ballet practice.
December of course is Christmas, that will be a trip to TAMPA! I've always wanted to see the Biltmore House in Asheville NC all decorated for Christmas, but....I'll be glad to have my weekends back in Dec after Nutcracker!
Let's see how many of these things I actually accomplish!
