In search of fall color...

Beau and I spent yesterday on a trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway in search of fall color and boy did we ever find it. We wanted to be adventurous so we made no real plans. That was a good idea and a bad idea.

We hit a hiccup around Grandfather Mountain where the Wooly Worm Festival, the App. State football came and other leaf-lovers all converged into a horrific mix of traffic. We couldn't find relief in any directions and after stopping and going and stopping and going we decided to just push on through. We finally made it to Black Mountain where we stopped off for a delicious meal and headed home exhausted but feeling really good about the day.

This morning after sleeping in for the first time in ages we headed over in for brunch at the Lake Lure Inn and Spa. It was amazing! If you're ever in the area on a Sunday and looking for a delicious brunch treat, check it out! The food was delicious, the views amazing and the place itself is like stepping onto a movie set.
