|Two people very happy to be here (August 6-9, 2018)|
For four days, we not only enjoyed just being at the Inn, but we also enjoyed traveling on the Blue Ridge Parkway, doing a little hiking, checking out waterfalls, eating plenty of great food at the inn restaurant (including Blackberry Cobbler with Ice Cream; Oink Oink!!!! ha), driving across the Cherohala Skyway, checking out the Newfound Gap area of our Smoky Mountains (on the way home)----AND visiting Biltmore where we enjoyed seeing the Chihuly Glass Sculptures... I have so many pictures and so many possible blog posts...
BUT--today, I'll begin by showing you a little from the PISGAH INN... (If you want more information about the inn, click HERE.) If you are ever looking for a wonderful and peaceful place to visit (especially in the summer --if you are looking for some cooler weather), AND if you love being in the mountains--then this is the place for you!
Hope you enjoy the pictures. First of all, I'll tell you where we were!!!!!! Sit back and enjoy!
|Look careful below the arrow --and you'll see PISGAH INN!!!!! Do you see us --way up there???? The elevation up there is about 5700 feet... AND --it was so COOL (in the 60's-70's) for August which I loved!!!!!|
|I took these pictures with my long lens from another overlook along the Blue Ridge Parkway!!!! Now --you can see us a little better!|
|Another Overlook along the parkway; You can see us even better!!!|
|AND ---here's one even closer!!!! Our room was in the building you can see on the right. We were on the top floor near the middle. There are at least 2 more buildings to the right of ours not visible in this picture.|
|Our room was in this building (Building 2)|
|The front of our building; I took this picture from the front of our room late in the afternoon on August 6... I love seeing the sun peaking through the trees.|
|The grounds at Pisgah Inn are so pretty... (Glad the deer haven't eaten their Hosta)|
|Talk about peaceful!!!! Get a cold drink (or some hot tea) --and sit outside and enjoy the gorgeous view!!!|
|Look at the mountain views we had from our room (balcony) ---or from the rocking chairs in the picture above.|
|We saw so many beautiful WILDFLOWERS this week. I took this picture from our balcony!!|
|They recently built this terrific platform near the restaurant --where people could sit or stand and enjoy the views.|
|Here's George doing what we both did all week---taking a picture!!!! This was from our table in the restaurant one cool morning. NOTE that we wore our sweatshirts several times during the week, especially in the mornings!!!!!|
|My photo of the view from the table at the restaurant that morning; Isn't it amazing????|
|Our Balcony ---as we were taking pictures of a beautiful SUNRISE; We got up about 6:30 and enjoyed the sunrise all three mornings.|
|A Panorama of our SUNRISE which I took with my iPhone on August 7, 2018|
|We enjoyed seeing the fog in the mountains below us... This was taken one morning at sunrise...|
|Even though we couldn't see the SUNSET from our room ---we enjoyed seeing a beautiful sky as the sun set in the west.|
|A VERY VERY happy lady --just enjoying the views and glad to be there...|
Thanks to all of you for the wonderful birthday wishes, and for your thoughts about my health situation. I had a wonderful week ---and even though I am now 'slower than Christmas', we did do some hiking and I did good!!!! I have the most awesome husband in the entire world. He is so helpful and so caring... I am one lucky lucky woman.
