Come Along with Us-Asheville/Black Mountain Day 2

Even though I’ve got the most photos from this day of our trip, I’m going to have to keep it short for now. Happy Father’s Day to the Dads out there and especially to my own, the best! And to my guy who is a terrific dad to our two!

If you’re still with me on tour it’s on to day 2 . . . We didn’t think we had ever been to Black Mountain (a small town near Asheville) and we had read so many brochures that were enticing, we decided we’d go for a visit.This town is small, charming and full of personality. A couple of snapshots of the streets of the town of Black Mountain to give you a feel for the town.

The artful influence is abundant here and the shops are filled with loads of temptation.

No Food of the Day photo but how about Building of the Day instead?

Quirky Sight of the Day:

This bronze elephant as signage.

Flower of the Day:

We lucked into the time of year when the rhododendrons are blooming on the mountainsides. My mother loved the rhododendrons!

Chocolate Shop of the Day:

Does it taste better if the proprietor speaks with an English accent?

We also took a ride along the Blue Ridge Parkway. If you haven't ever visited the mountains of North Carolina, the parkway is a wonderful way to see them. I'll post some of those photos in a separate post soon. Only one day left to see what we can see!
