Back On The Road Again

It was so very hard NOT to drive the Bus to the Byrne house as we drove out of town.  We so enjoyed the babies (and Bethany, David and Westley) and the time we spent with them.  But, all good things must come to an end - and so we took one last look at Charleston and the Chapel of Ease (just down the street from our little home away from home) - and were on our way.

Chapel of Ease 

Next stop - Asheville, NC.  This originally was not even on our agenda, but because of many recommendations from friends, we decided to add it and are very happy we did.  The area is beautiful - so our overnight stay extended to three days!  We golfed and lunched at Grove Park Inn, 'almost' golfed at Mt. Mitchell (we were rained out after 3 holes!), drove some of the Blue Ridge Parkway to Little Switzerland, and visited and dined at the Vanderbilt home - Biltmore!  

Such a beautiful stop - we will let Gary's pictures tell the story and talk to you again after the Great Smokey National Park.  

At the 17th at Grove Park
