Thirty Years

 Gerry and I spent this past weekend in Asheville NC. Many of you reading are plenty familiar with Asheville, I'm sure. What a great town. So full of art and fun. It was a perfect spot to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.

We were only there for a couple of days, but we packed a lot in. We went for a nice hike in the mountains. The air is so fresh and cool, it just feels like a cleansing when you breathe in.

Our hotel sent up a bucket of Highland Ales, brewed right there in town. Way better than champagne!

We walked around town one morning before all the shops opened. This little garden shop was calling to me. I love all of the little back alleys that you pass when you walk around in a city. They always seem so mysterious.

Loved the gate on this bar.

 This was the bathroom door at Izzy's Coffee shop. Serving Counter Culture coffee and the best latte I have ever had. The men's door was the same, only a guy.

On the inside of the bathroom,  the walls were completely covered with graffiti. I love graffiti. Spent more time than I needed in there reading, haha!

A little piece of pottery in one of the many restaurant windows. Reminded me of Judi Tavill's work. The window sill was lined with these. Really nice presentation.

Before we headed back home, we had lunch and then went for a nap by the banks of the French Broad River.

Some mama geese and their babies joined us. They hissed a tiny warning, but were mostly friendly and curious. I suppose they were waiting for the obligatory bread most tourists offer, but we don't feed wild animals..... they gotta figure it out themselves.

Happy 30th, Ger. Looking forward to 30 more!
