Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! I’m a bit sluggish getting up my daily posts this week. It’s hard to come off a long holiday weekend. I’m also trying to not stress over scheduling in advanced like I did last year. That’s probably a big part of me loosing track of what I want to do with my blog.
Yesterday, I hinted I would share with you a few pictures from our Saturday outing to the charming community of Brevard, NC.
A day out wouldn’t be the same, if we didn’t get donuts. In Brevard, we attempted to find donuts, but came up empty handed. Instead, we got a few baked goods at a Bracken Mountain Bakery (BMB) next door to this cute little soda shop. I’d like to say the pastries were worth the time and money, but sadly they were not. The scones were too dry and not sweet enough to suit my taste. The Maple Walnut sticky bun was bland (nothing on the inside like traditional rolled type pastries ) and not sweet enough. The only good thing about the sticky bun was the maple walnut topping and it needed twice the amount. The best thing we had was the orange glazed cinnamon bun. I give it only an average rating. DH hated the raisins inside the folds and I thought the orange and cinnamon combination was a bit confusing to my brain. After a few nibbles we were through with them. I was okay with that. I mean, neither of us needed the extra calories anyhow. That all being said, we’re glade we tried BMB. It was a fun experience nonetheless and we can now cross this place off our list.
From the intersection of N-64 & 276, we turned west onto Pisgah Hwy (route 276) on our way back home which goes through the Pisgah National Forest. About 4-miles up, we came upon Looking Glass Falls which is conveniently beside the road. Last summer we were in the area and it was too busy to find a spot to pull off, but this time we were able to get off the road safety and photograph the falls.
There is a trail just to the left of the image that takes you closer to the falls, but with the wind we decided to stay at the higher vantage point to avoid water spray. It wasn’t warm enough to enjoy getting wet.
The day was amazingly spent in the beauty of the mountains. We even saw traces of snow as we ascended the mountain in shade. This served to remind us that it’s still winter despite the warmth of our day.
Sending a round of applauds and cheers to this week’s featured photographer…
