Oct 29th - What a Beautiful Day!

I slept a little later today and Bill was up a little earlier, but we still didn't get breakfast until around 10:00.  We are just enjoying the sitting and looking out the window routine too much!
Eventually, we took off for a ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway and we couldn't have picked a better day!  It was in the  high 60's and there was plenty of sunshine.  The leaves are past their prime for color, but there are pockets of color, especially in the lower elevations.  Even up in the mountains, without all the colored leaves, it is still beautiful.  We stopped for a while at the visitor's center.
From there, we completed the Parkway drive and then went on into Cherokee, where we stopped at the DQ for an ice cream and to use the wi-fi.  We then headed back to the cabin on the highway.  What a gorgeous drive - we both really enjoyed it.
We then decided it was time to rest - after all, we had really exerted outselves with that long trip!  I read and dozed off a short bit and when I got up, Bill was swining in the porch swing.  I joined him and we were out there for an hour or so.  It is such a beautiful view and the weather was perfect.
We finally came back in and relaxed inside some more.  Neither of us was really hungry, so we ended up having a chili dog for dinner. 
What a great day this was!
