NOVEMBER 3, 2013 (Sunday)
Time change this morning. When we did wake up, it was to glorious sunshine. Michael and I couldn’t wait to get out into it. Lexi wanted to stay and do her laundry (and have some space). ((I, Mike, can’t believe she needs time away from us, we are such fun! Except for when we aren’t))
We left around noon and headed for what we (Edie) thought was Highlands, but we (Edie insisted I) went the wrong way (because of my directions). We did get to see some beautiful homes on Lake Toxaway, in Transylvania County, North Carolina. Love saying Transylvania County. Feels like we’re in a foreign country with vampires. I feel like what Lexi said yesterday, “I feel like I am travelling through a Thomas Kinkade painting with all the beautiful colors everywhere.
We turned around and drove the right way, through Cashiers, past Highlands, and to Bridal Veil Falls. It’s right off Highway 64. It was lovely but not nearly as lovely as the falls down the road a couple of miles, Dry Falls. Don’t know why they call it Dry Falls as it’s wonderful and very wet. You walk down a bunch of stairs and get to walk under the falls if you want to get completely wet. Fun. The bad part is having to walk back up the steps. It is worth it, though, as it is so beautiful.
After that we got gas in Highlands and went looking for a place to eat lunch. We settled on a place called SweeTreats. It was on the corner where you turn on Highway 64 in the town of Highlands. As you walked into this tiny little place, the smells were wonderful. They make and mix all their ice cream with this really neat mega blender. The place was really busy, and tiny, so it was hard to stay out of the way while others were trying to get in and place orders. We did get our order and then went up the street to eat it. Michael had ordered a Ruben, I had a Cuban sandwich, and Lexi got a club. Michael loved his and mine was excellent. I had decided on something different when I heard a couple in front of me talking about the Cuban and how good it was.
After our lunch break, we drove to Cashiers and Michael went to Ingles to get a few items. I headed to the Dollar General to get a few things.
That was our day. Hope yours was great!
