Last weekend, I let the rest of the world and the opera know that they would have to fend for themselves for a few days. Then I put myself out of reach. I went to the mountains with Jane and blogless Diana.
We left on a beautiful sunny afternoon and our first stop was: The Jane Hurt Yarn Interpretive Center at Tallulah Gorge.
What could be more fitting? I snaped a picture of Jane hurting some yarn.
Then it was on to investigate a great American Tourist Trap:
Goats on the Roof! Where there were indeed Goats on the Roof and on the bridge.
After a well derserved stop at the Dairy Queen it was on to our mountain top retreat.
We had been warned that there were bears in the area and were instructed to ask about the “bear safety pamplet” at the gate. The gate attendant found that quite funny and told us if we saw a bear we should just scream.
Once we unpacked the van, I took these lovely pictures of the view from the house.
Then we sat on the porch and knitted until it got too cold. It was a good thing we did too because the next morning this was the view from the porch.
More about our adventures……Next time.
