    Boone, North Carolina #1

    September 2, 2014 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    About a six hour drive to Rachel & Marc's holiday cabin in the mountains in Boone. The house is rustic on the outside but very comfortable inside and the view across the mountains was beautiful. Boone is a college/skiing/tourist town and was very, very busy with lots of traffic and people moving about. It's O week with students everywhere!
    Some views outside the cabin and sunset from the back porch.

    Boone, North Carolina #2

    September 3, 2014 in the United States ⋅ 🌫 21 °C

    More photos of the Umlas's cabin. Three levels, four bedrooms and bathrooms, living area, kitchen, laundry downstairs. Boone is popular with the well-heeled and has lots of lovely boutique-style stores as well as bars and cafes that cater more to uni students. Its quite an eclectic and vibrant mix! It is much larger than we expected and the volume of traffic was what you would expect in a larger city.Read more

  • Day23

    Linville Falls, North Carolina

    September 5, 2014 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Stopped off in Boone to look around the stores on the way to Linville Falls. Much less traffic than the other day. The weather was beautiful - we have been so lucky with great weather thus far. Had lunch before walking to the Falls - about an hour's walk. Started raining and a heavy storm arrived after dinner.Read more

  • Day17


    May 26, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    What a relief we are finally here! Showered and hair washed and feel more like back to normal now. Had roast turkey last night and it was so good to have a home-cooked meal again. The wine was beautiful too!

    Some shots of our home (& garden) away from home for the next few weeks, apart from when we will be on the road, & our friendly, hospitable hosts!!Read more

  • Day29


    June 7, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    After washing sheets etc and having breakfast we left for the very long drive back to Bardstown. We travelled through Tennessee and it was one of the prettiest drives we've taken so far. The trip didn't seem so long because it was so picturesque. We arrived home about 4 o'clock and did some much-needed washing. All up we drove 2,000 miles in the last 11 days and we saw many places we would not normally have seen and certainly hiked many trails we would otherwise never have hiked.
    First shot is of the sunrise from the porch of the cabin, second is the foxgloves beside the path and the third shows the petals of the mountain laurel on the steps to the cabin. They are very delicate and look like shells when they fall upside down. Then packing up the car and a last look at the cabin before leaving.

  • Day30


    June 8, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    We needed a good sleep after Sue had to take Norman to hospital for a brain scan late yesterday. He's OK but has had two small strokes and needs to see a neurosurgeon before he will know more. Not what any of us expected or wanted but better to know than be unaware.
    Went into Bardstown with Sue then back for lunch. Walked along Froman Greenwell Road to see the donkeys and bed after dinner. Norman is still waiting for a call from the doctor so we aren't able to venture too far at the moment. Beautiful weather.
    Some shots from around the garden. Note the deer sitting on the grass!

    June 9, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Norman is still waiting to hear from the specialist so no exploring too far from home just yet. We went to the supermarket with him this morning and saw something we have never seen before. Groceries came to $122.00 and at the end of the process the girl gave HIM $1.08 in change!!! This happens about every 3 months according to Sue. They have a frequent shopper program, with the supermarket's own credit card, that is obviously fairly generous.
    Ron saw a young deer run by the side of the house, towards the woods. It sat there for a while but they are very sensitive to movement and noise and it ran away when we tried to get a closer look. No snakes in sight yet, thank heavens.
    Hillary Clinton's endorsement by Obama & Elizabeth Warren occupied the news tonight on MSNBC - no sight or sound of Trump - for a change!!
    Some more shots of the garden.

  • Day32


    June 10, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Went to Walmart with Sue while Norman waited at home for a call. It's big but it didn't seem very busy at all. Then to the drive-through at the bank - something we've never seen before! Sue pulled up at the chute, took the container out, put the cheque in the container, put it back in the chute and it zipped to the teller at the window. She was surprised to hear we don't have this at home and was happy for Ron to take photos (thought we should check first)! The money came back in an envelope in the container and down the chute. No need to fill in any forms and all she asked was for Sue's SS number. Apparently you can do all banking this way - paying loans, withdrawing and depositing etc.
    Norman finally got an appt next Thursday, with the neurologist, Monday with the opthalmologist & Tuesday with his GP so next week will be a big week.
    It's been an absolutely glorious day today - beautiful warm sunshine.
    Some more shots of the grounds, with a bit of Pointer humour in the first two and a generally in-American sight in the third.

  • Day33


    June 11, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Haven't had a walk for a few days so after breakfast we headed to Bernheim Arboretum., not far from here. It's 15,000 acres of trees & gardens and was so peaceful as there were hardly any people about. We walked around the 32 acre lake which is populated by many, many Canada geese. Saw a turtle burrowing in the mud but when he heard us he pulled his head in!
    We walked to the vegetable garden that is manned by volunteers and used to teach people about sustainable gardening. The food is also used in the cafe. Last weekend Bernheim tried to break the Guinness record for the largest number of tree huggers (we're not sure if they made it) and there were some huggers still there!! Had a nice lunch in the cafe in the building designed by Carolne Kennedy's husband and has a grass roof.
    Ron and I then went to the enormous indoor/outdoor flea market. We'd been there before but we won't be going again! The big change was that there were no guns for sale and there was a sign saying it is illegal to sell them on the grounds. There were, however, a couple of stalls selling very nasty knives of all types.
    Some shots from around Bernheim,including one of the tree huggers.

  • Day35


    June 13, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 25 °C

    Earlier breakfast today then off to the Sisters of Charity convent at Nazareth for a walk around the lake and in the grounds. Beautiful morning for a walk, before it heated up. We stopped by the church for a look - it was very airy and light, unlike many Roman Catholic churches we've seen. When we came home we walked in the woods to see the fruits of all Norman's hard work clearing and planting. After lunch we went to the Post Office to post a couple of parcels home but one was too full so we bought one box to put everything in - very happy with what we managed to get into the box.
    Dinner was fried green tomatoes (yum - his best yet!) and gumbo with lots of goodness, including alligator meat! It tasted much like chicken except a little tougher.
    First two shots are of the grounds at Nazareth, including the cemetery.
    Third is a closer look at the evidence of the Pointer humour in the signpost.
    Fourth shows the fairies on the tree trunk.
    Fifth is of the chocolate lab statue where Gemma was buried.
    Last one is us enjoying the sunshine in the woods.
