The Blue Ridge Mountains

The Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina

I have to admit, it was a bit of a shock to find myself miles from home, in the middle of the summer, sitting in a Inn office gazing at condos that the previous owner had just gutted to make way for his new love. But then again, that’s about all I can say about my surprise move to Carolina. The Blue Ridge Mountains

My family and I came west to retire in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and we became Triangle members, knowing full well that life away from home would be a challenge. We bought in at an old farm just outside of Raleigh, and after working for a couple of months as a vacation rep for a major golf company, we were off to cut our teeth on the open road. สล็อตเว็บตรง

Big Surasaurus, Cape Hatteras, the Nantahala National Forest, and the American Jr. Olympic Track in champion swimmer hub; just a few of the pursuits, big and small, that we owned. We also traded in our Detroit Lions football team for a Packer’s camp in time to watch the rival New England Patriots in action. We saw the games, grew tired of watching the games, and packed our bags and left the city behind, for a farm stay in the mountains.

In our resumé to move to the area we listed several of the attractions and businesses in the area. One of the first businesses we checked out was the Blue Ridge Mountain Potters. We were told the owner was an expert craftsman and great craftsman, Patrickusual. Great! This man can put together some stout frame work as if he were Wood-Eagles at their best. I admired every inch of his pottery, even the delicate trays he designed. The shop is kind of neat inside as are the living quarters and even the toilets. We bought several things along with the dozen or so pottery pieces we bought. โอกาสการจ้างงานในอาชีพ

Another business, which we also really enjoyed, was the Camp half-way Along Blue Ridge Mountain in Celtis Court. The owner Patrick usual takes up a residence in the shop and we would call him the shop’s host. As we came into the shop for a window shop, we were given a demonstration of glass blowing and applied some minor glass Polish to the outdoor patio which overlooks the shop and river. We spent a couple of hours there and helicopters were buzzing overhead, which apparently is not unusual at the shop, as they have a permit to fly up to the shop. It was also standard to be greeted with a glass of champagne, fruit and cookies!

Patrick runs the shopalsa-art.store along U.S. 441 on the edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains, in the vicinity of the village of Carrville. The shop is at the end of a country road and a half-mile down the mountain path, at the point where the railroad used to head. As we were visiting with a couple from Australia, they wanted to know where we bought our Indian art because there were no shops in the village. We showed them where we bought the pieces and they were bowled over with the richness of the materials. We even window shopped a couple of times.

All in all we had a great visit to start our lives in the south. The owners have put together quite a nice routine of activities for visitors to enjoy, many of which we have done. For us the schedule was to enable us to Sitesweep!

See you at the next pagoda brew!
