You Know That You Have Been Traveling A Lot When....

you are driving on 40 on your way to Asheville, NC and you see a guy sitting on a guardrail hitch hiking and you realize that you saw the same guy walking down the side of the road 5 weeks ago in Centerville, FL. True story!!

So I have been in NC for the last 4 weeks training new employees and 2 weeks in Asheville opening a new store.
Asheville is a beautiful city in the Blue Ridge Moutains. I was lucky to have the chance to go out to the farm of one of my coworkers. This is a picture from her farm. What a gorgeous place!
I had the golf cart tour. That is her house and barn.
She has some beautiful gypsy horses.
Happy farm cats.
Happy dogs. What a great way to put the stress of the work day behind you.
Sweet horses.
 Asheville has a wonderful food scene too.
I had a amazing vegan meal at Plant.
An amazing breakfast at..
Some of the best Mexican I have ever had at Papa's & Beer.
The second week that I was there one of my stitching friends came up from Greenville, SC and we ate at Seven Sows.
They are supposed to have one of the 10 best fried chicken entrees in the US. It was an amazing meal. So glad that I could share it with a friend. I continue to try and catch up with friends during my travels.
  Well, it is time to get on my plane.

Happy Monday!

Chris

At least you've been a bit more settled as of late - you can really learn about the area and enjoy the scenery and food.

Looks like you are seeing some amazing places, Chris! Enjoy it! I miss stitching and blogging too. It's just so hard too juggle everything but I figure I'll get back to it eventually once I find my routine.

Anne said...

YAYAYAY!! You're back Chris! I'm so happy :D Love all the photos of your travels and I'm just a wee bit jealous you got to ride a horse...looooove horses!! I was always jealous of my friends who had horses. Hugs from me and Titus gives you a furry nudge!

Carol said...

So good to read your latest updates, Chris! I'm just so envious of all of the great places you're getting to see. I know it is for work, but it looks like you're getting to see the sights in each destination, too. Love the shots of Asheville... Have visited twice and there is such a sense of peace in those soothing mountain views :)
