MILL BRIDGE WINERY

MILL BRIDGE WINERY

After Chris and I left The Pottery House Cafe we wanted to walk across the bridge to our favorite winery… but we frequent this lovely establishment for their hard cider! We found out about Mill Bridge Winery back in April when we went to Smoky Mountain Wine Fest. We sampled their cider, bought a growler, and never looked back! Continue reading “MILL BRIDGE WINERY”

THE POTTERY HOUSE CAFE

THE POTTERY HOUSE CAFE

The Pottery House Cafe is owned by the same group of people who have The Old Mill Restaurant right across the street. The restaurant serves sinfully indulgent comfort food family style so if you decide to eat there bring your appetite. I have enjoyed eating at both institutions but my preference leans toward The Pottery House Cafe because it provides a more intimate environment. Continue reading “THE POTTERY HOUSE CAFE”

SOAKING IN HOT SPRINGS

SOAKING IN HOT SPRINGS

Hot Springs, NC is home to a breathtaking resort and spa. The hot spring water is piped directly into giant jacuzzi tubs which makes for quite the experience. Each tub is housed in a cabin-like structure with 3 walls providing privacy and the fourth wall is non-existent.

We were driving toward Blue Ridge Parkway to go on a hike when we saw the most beautiful patch of sunflowers. Continue reading “ROADSIDE SUNFLOWERS”

BOWLING AT MAPLE HALL

BOWLING AT MAPLE HALL

Since Chris and I started dating back in 2012, I learned quickly that he and his parents were very competitive when it came to bowling. Sadly I’m a dreadful bowler and when they poke a little fun at me I claim it is because I had actual things to do growing up in Tennessee. I grew up fishing and scraping my knees. No way was I going to give up riding my bike and catching fireflies for fluorescent lighting and rented shoes! Now that I’m a little older I realized I was missing out on a lot of fun.
