We've just enjoyed a short but sweet visit to western North Carolina.
We met up with some old friends and made some new ones, always fun.
The Blue Ridge Mountains shimmered in the 95F summer heat -
and the sunsets were beautiful.
These were views from our hotel window.
Driving home yesterday, the sun was bright , temperatures soaring into
the nineties yet again. Leaving the higher mountains, the rolling hills were
many shades of green, and the 'Carolina Blue' sky filled with puffy clouds,
making the drive so enjoyable. We stopped for ice cream at the half way mark.
Arriving back in Raleigh the heat index was 108F! I quickly ran from the car
into the cottage which felt wonderfully cool.
As I always say, there's no place like home!
