Last night, we dined at the Chetola Inn in Blowing Rock - great meal, and spirited conversation. So much so that I decided to do an Obama apology tour from table to table to determine whether we disturbed any of the other diners. They all said that the entertainment was great, and the men were all envious! The women were amused. Good thing we were on our best behavior.
Today, the route goes cross country from Lenoir to Statesville, rolling hills, some steep climbing. After yesterday's mountains, we are ready.
