Leilani and I went to the mountains with Betsy for her 50th birthday celebration. Today we drove from Raleigh to Blowing Rock. We got in around 2:30 and scouted the hotel out. It reminds me of a hunting lodge from the outside, but on the inside it is very modern. I'm especially taken and disappointed (all at the same time) with the bathroom, whose shower has marble. Just like mine. And here I thought my shower was pretty original. Ce'st la vie.
|Leilani, Heide & Betsy were here. 2012|
|Mystery Hill's "Vortex"|
For dinner, we went to The Canyon - a restaurant that used to be a speakeasy and opened in the 30's
|Grandfather Mountain is beneath that sun. I got sunburned|
for sitting out there for all of 45minutes. Ugh!
|And this is me freezing|
Now here we are at the hotel. I'm freezing and Betsy thinks it's stuffy in here. This is gonna be some night! :)
Tomorrow - The adventures of Grandfather Mountain and more Blowing Rock. Also entitled "The episode where we (might) fall off a mountain and are rescued by hot firefighter I saw at Food Lion."
