This summer we went on our family vacation much earlier than normal. We also tried to NOT do the same old thing. Our general wants this year included taking a bicycle, hanging on the beach and accommodating a pooch. Our compromise started with family time in the mountains of North Carolina.
We headed to my uncle's house first...

|Totally posed! |
My hubby...he is a daredevil, but he wasn't in any danger here.

|Amazing how close to the edge this rail sits.|
|Beautiful orange rhododendron's|
|Now THIS is creepy!|
|There were several tiny little gravestones too.|
|Anyone a fan of the movie star Edward Norton? I wonder if he had relatives in North Carolina?|
