Finally vacation!

It's been way too long since Carl and I went on vacation. We used to have dogs which really tied us up, but they have since passed and we are no longer tied to the house. Carl's dad lives in Clemson, SC and asked us to visit and house/dog sit while he and his wife go out of town. We were on board; can't beat free lodging ;-)

Of course it was raining in C-bus when we left but as we got further south it started to clear up. The clouds and the sun were just gorgeous. We had the windows down so Carl gave me his hat to wear..I had to snap a selfie of course!

To break our trip up, we met his dad in Asheville, NC. It's a hippie town with cute little shops. It was quite crowded so we circled a few times and finally found  a place to park. We found his dad and went to the Sky Bar, which is a bar on the side of an old building.  Once we were up there, it was quite windy! They kept warning everyone not to put their glass on the menu as the wind would whip in and cause the glasses to fall and break. We heard at least 2 glass crashes. People just don't listen.

The view was just spectacular and the sky was blue. What was really cool about this place was the original 1920's elevator.
This still worked!

Once we were back down, we hopped back in the car and drove the rest of the way to Clemson and had dinner. It was a long day but glad to be at our destination.
