Old Fort, North Carolina

Lunch-- Shrimp Cocktail and a Big Smile

We stopped for a late afternoon lunch at a roadside park in Old Fort. The sky was beautiful, rimmed by these gigantic trees.
Shade and Wonder

Our feast? Jumbo shrimp cocktail from Ingles. Million dollar meal.

North Carolina Pine... Stunning!

Highway 80, Lake Tahoma

Lake Tahoma, Marion, NC
Just a stunning North Carolina day. The sun and clouds were magnificent and I shot hundreds of photographs while listening to music on my mp3 player. With all the record-breaking rain we have had these past weeks, everything is green and the streams are swelled with rushing water.

I love this ride up to the parkway because Lake Tahoma is so beautiful along the way.

Hemlock Grove, Highway 80
The fertile hemlock forest that hugged and twisted with Buck Creek was green and glorious.

Love how the sun glints off of Steven's helmet
