I might not have the energy to hike these days (and lately, I've really wanted to) but at least I can still enjoy nature.
If you are ever in Brevard, NC you have to take a drive up route 276. Picnic spots, views, waterfalls, and Sliding Rock. And if you keep going after all that, you reach The Blue Ridge Parkway.
A while back, my mom and I grabbed lunch in a deli in Brevard. We drove up route 276, and not too far along we found a lovely picnic spot next to a loud creek.
I know, cream soda, right? Should my liver be processing that? But it was sooooo good. The number one thing I miss is soda. I had a love/hate relationship with the stuff. I hated that I loved soda 2 to 3 times a day. I gave it up shortly before finding out I have cancer, and have only sipped ginger ale since.
Wait . . . this post was suppose to be about the loveliness of the NC mountains . . . not cancer. If I could live in Brevard, NC, I think I would . . . but for now I visit. . . and I dream . . .
