As some of you may already know, we are planning to sell our home here in sunny warm NC and move back to not as sunny and warm NY to be closer to family. I have tried for 16 years to get everyone to move down here....but I've been outnumbered. lol
So here is my list of 5 things I'll miss about North Carolina.
5) Kill Devils Hill and The Outer Banks
I absolutely loved the trips we have taken to The Outer Banks. Walking the beach, floating the waves, and the shops are such fun. Plus you're not too far from the wild horses of Corolla and in the opposite direction is Roanoke where you'll find lots of fun places to explore like the aquarium and botanical gardens.
4) Blowing Rock.
Closer to home is Blowing Rock, in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. I can see the mountains from my front porch, but the trip up the mountain is so much fun. The first stop is always at the rock....you'll get an amazing view if you are brave enough to walk out to the tip (I never have, lol). Then into downtown to enjoy a great day of shopping and eating.
Right down the road from us is the little town of Hiddenite, home of the Emerald Hollow Mine.
It looks muddy, but it's a lot of fun, prospecting for gems.
One of the things I love about the south is not only the lovely weather, but also the love of history.
Chuck and I always enjoyed jumping in the car and traveling the route to shop our favorite antique shops.
The place I will miss the most is my church.
It's not just our church..they are our family.
If you're in this area, and looking for a place to belong, to be loved, check us out.
So, what is your favorite spot in your neck of the woods?
