Today was supposed to be a rain day so we planned things that didn't require good weather. As it turned out it was a beautiful day - probably over 19 degrees!! We started out at the Folk Center - many great pieces from local artisans including quilting, pottery, paintings, woodworking, jewellery no more. Then we drove to the Builtmore Estate - home of the Vanderbuilts. We didn't actually see it ... A very ...

In Rosman, we turned on US-178 and stopped by Eastatoe Falls. This beautiful waterfall is literally in someone’s backyard, but ...
... 8217;t cross to the big rocks on the other side without getting wet. It was over my knees and fast moving, so Sandy decided to stay dry while I crossed over to get some pictures. This is a beautiful waterfall - one of my favorites in North Carolina. And it was really flowing with higher than average water levels. Unfortunately, it was hard to get a good picture as the midday sun was shining right on it and the water level was ...
