Holiday Trip to Asheville

Sarah has been wanting to take a family trip around the holidays for the past several years.  But Sam likes coming home from Chicago.  But this year, he and his girlfriend were traveling to New Zealand and Kylie liked the idea of a quick vacation to the mountains from her new home in New York City.

The three of us drove up on Monday, staying at a very nice Bed and Breakfast just north of downtown Asheville.  It is in an old house that has been well cared for and offers a fine place to stay.

These trips are usually filling space around eating, so yesterday, I wanted to see some mountains, so we got onto the Blue Ridge Parkway heading northeast, but ran into a roadblock only a few miles in.  So we looped back to town over some wonderful mountain roads.  Then off to the Folk Art Center, then downtown for lunch and the usual stop at Tops for Shoes.

A little time at the inn, then back to town for dinner.  It s a fine little city for anyone looking for a place to visit.
