Blue Ridge Parkway

Finally!  A day with sunshine and no rain!  We both scrambled out the door like giddy little children.

Left Brain took a nice long bike ride up and down the hills.  This is scary for me because the roads are narrow and windy with a 45 mph speed limit.  But he came back just fine.

I went into Waynesville to check out the pickleball at the Old Armory Rec Center.  Today was scheduled for beginners, but it had been so long since I'd held a paddle in my hands I just couldn't stay away.  I introduced myself to the coach and she had me floating around assisting and giving encouragement.  As the day went on more and more left, so I got in some playing time and left sweaty and happy.

After returning to the RV we both cleaned up and headed out for some lunch and then a drive around the area, with a stretch of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

What a glorious drive, winding up through the mountains with several overlooks to stop and admire the autumn colors poking out in the hills.

Hopefully the weather will remain rain-free and we can continue to explore this little corner of G-ds country.

Long Live the Queen of the Mountain


  1. We did a short drive on the Parkway, also. The colors are definitely starting.

  2. I am glad you got in some Pickle Ball. I know how much you enjoy that! Maybe George & Gracie can learn Tent Ball, too. Our George had intensive practice today.

    As always, your photos are breathtaking.

  3. I drove through here a few times, and it really is beautiful. I never realized just how famous and popular pickleball was. I'm glad you were able to find it nearby. Have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
