The morning was spent on the golf course (him)
and at a coffee shop and thrift stores (her).
Later in the afternoon...
we crossed the Little Tennessee River on this suspension bridge.
I'm not a huge fan of these contraptions, but I worked up my courage and crossed it.
There was a deserted road on the other side. We walked along it to see such sights as the white barked, five-trunked Beech tree (below), a few wild flowers, and...
the stone-walled mountain side. The vertical grooves indicate the use of dynamite
to make way for the road at one time. Spring is still unfolding in North Carolina.
A few weeks later and there would have been a lot of "green".
Still we enjoyed the sights of nature unfamiliar to us in NE Indiana.
Except for a few geese, we were alone to enjoy the view at our own pace.
After a lovely meal at our favorite Italian restaurant in the town my brother and sister-in-law live in, we went back to the house for hot fudge sundaes, enjoyed another quiet evening of conversation and late night reading, and went to bed!
Another fabulous day of vacation enjoyed and documented.
