Biltmore Estate...

It was a gorgeous day in Asheville today!  The snow had already melted from the weekend, but here and there you could see a few areas of ice.  We toured the Biltmore Estate as well as the gardens.  We could not take photos inside the house, so I had to focus on the outside. There was still a lot to see!

Have a  blessed day!

Knoxville to Asheville...

At one time, I lived in North Carolina for four years and never once ventured over to see the Biltmore.  This is not the perfect time of the year to visit and I read that Asheville was hit with snow last weekend, but I fly to Knoxville today for a long weekend with my sister.  We are driving over to the mountains to shop, sightsee and of course, take pictures!  The last time I was in Asheville I went with my parents.  It was the last trip I took with my dad before he passed away.  Mom and dad loved to visit Chimney Rock, or at least this small park at its base.  More in a residential area, the road through is narrow and the beauty of nature rises up around it.  I remember a small river and this gorgeous home on the hill just across from the park.  Glad I have that memory! :)

Spring is almost here!

Outdoor Seating...

On my last trip to Miami, my hubby and I ventured up to Coconut Grove to have dinner.  Of course, I had the camera at the ready!  While making a turn down a side street to make a quick turn-around I saw this abandoned leather love seat.  We stopped in the road so I could get a few shots of it!
