Fun, Fun, Fun

I have been missing the last few days because I had special company!  My niece and great nephew (almost 3 years old) came to visit for a few days.

What did we do?
We did a little antiquing....

We did a little hiking....

We viewed some beautiful waterfalls.  This one above is at Chimney Rock, NC.  It is called Hickory Nut Falls and was in one of the movie scenes of the 1992 movie, The Last of The Mohicans.

The waterfall above is Looking Glass Falls in Pisgah National Forest, near Brevard, NC.

C and H.....We miss you already!  I wish we could have spent more time together.

I will show you what I bought while antiquing in my next post.

Welcome Home,
Penny

  4. That's a great looking old bench. Someday I want a room, a sunroom perhaps, that is big enough to hold a piece like that.

    Glad you had such a good time!
