We left The Potter's House Retreat on Sunday around
lunch ~ our first stop was in the town of Blowing Rock, NC. The town was bustling with tourists & activity. We were able to go inside this church ~
The stone walls were insulated with horse hair and I tried to get a close-up shot of it, but was not able to.
The foyer ceiling was recently painted by an artist.
The Other Side
Later that evening we drove into Asheville and visited with another blogger, Sandy, at Faith, Hope, and Love. Our hearts were so blessed by our visit with her and her husband. I left my camera in the van, so I did not get a picture. :-(
We traveled on down into Brevard, NC on Sunday evening - lovely town. I have marked this stop on the map, definitely want to re-visit Brevard. We spent the night and enjoyed shopping there.
just a short drive out from Brevard, is Pisgah National Forest
Looking Glass Falls is located in Pisgah
You can see the waterfall off to the right in this picture.
Dianne researched and found the waterfall is over 60 feet high.
Marilyn, my Mother-in-law taking a break from going down the
stairs to the waterfall.
The rhododendrons were beginning to bloom.
I really don't know who had more fun snapping pictures, me or Dianne. It was such a blessing to be able to share this adventure
with her and Marilyn.
such a peaceful area out in the Pisgah National Forest - lots of people walking and this great poser for the camera was enjoying being out with his owner - his name is Titus.
after leaving Brevard, we headed out on the Blue Ridge Parkway for quite a few miles, but eventually left the Parkway for a much more curvy and narrow road - very slow going! oh, the blessings of taking the back roads - we did pull over for a few pics, but not alot of pull off spots.
Bridal Veil Falls and we did not take the road underneath it -
we played it safe.
The next few pictures were taken around The Highlands of NC.
The highlight of my trip ~ a covered bridge!
The white house in the above picture is a Bed and Breakfast in
The little church below is located in Dillard, GA. We came down through the north part of Georgia and spent the night in Gainsville.
We decided the Presbyterian churches were some of the most beautiful ones we found along the way ~ the picture below is a stained glass window of the Presbyterian in Aliceville, AL. established 1837.
We made a wrong turn and found this one in Aliceville
also - no sign and don't believe they still meet here.
It was fun and I hope you've enjoyed coming along for the
re-cap of the journey.
