North Carolina Sojourn- Part 2 of 2



                                            The 'très élégante' Grove Park Inn...



                             ...(with its spectacular view of the Blue Ridge Mountains)...



                                  ...was designed to mirror its natural environment.



                                  Filled with glorious Arts and Crafts furnishings...

                                               

                                     

                                                             ...and lighting...





                                          ...it truly is a spectacular place to visit!



The Battery Park Book Exchange and Champagne Bar was yet another highlight of my trip.


                                 A peaceful and nook-filled, book-lover's paradise...

                    ...it's packed with interesting tomes on all manner of subjects...



   ...plus, it's a great place to meet good friends for a coffee or a glass of wine!

                             (Here I am with my dear hosts, Paddy and Sandy...

                       ...and the delightful and indefatigable Chad Alice Hagen.) :)

With so much other "stuff" to see and do, it's a wonder you found any time for felting. I can see why it was such a great trip though. Wow. :)
