Jane and I went to Asheville, NC today. We had no set-in-stone plan for what to do once we got there other than to go exploring.
We started off by visiting Black Mountain, a nearby town with a lot of shops. There was a German restaurant that she wanted to go to but apparently of all the weeks to pick to remodel they chose this one. Oh well. But I did buy a great tshirt. Here’s Jane outside the store.
After that we headed into Asheville. It really seems like a cool little town. Sort of if you took a few of Atlanta’s more eclectic neighborhoods and turned them into one big neighborhood… and then doubled its size, made it look like a downtown area, and took out almost all of the panhandlers. I was pretty impressed.
We visited a lot of shops there and then went out for some BBQ before heading home. I took the scenic route home, through the mountains of western North Carolina instead of the boring highway route we took to get there. I got this picture right at sunset.
