Mary – 09-30-15 NC Trip – Townsend, TN to Asheville, NC

Winding road ... tiring for the driver. And, it's certainly not Bentley's favorite thing to do. This is one of his positions when stressed - lodged between Mary's seat and the armrest of RV.


Lots of smoke in the Smoky Mountains. Raining. 

Out of TN, and moving on into NC.


Arrived at Bear Creek RV in Asheville, set up, let Bentley out, and headed for dinner at a place recommended in Fodor's.

Feasted on North Carolina southern fare at the Tupelo Honey Cafe in downtown tonight. So good.! Conni had a fried chicken breast served in a bowl over biscuits and gravy. I had pecan coated fried chicken breast with mac 'n cheese and the best fried okra ever. Banana pudding was good enough to write home about.

We had leftovers, but after sitting in the car for five hours at Sisters of Mercy Urgent Care, we had to toss it.
We were at the urgent care because Conni's left thumb has been hurting a week or so and wasn't getting better. It turned out to be tendonitis. They put a splint on it that she has to wear for six weeks, so she may still be sporting it when we get home.

We're keeping our eye on Hurricane Joaquin in the Atlantic because it might hit land in the Carolina's and our trip plan is to head to Charlotte, NC, then Charleston, SC, and on to the Outer Banks, NC. 

In the meantime, they are predicting rain and flooding in Asheville through the weekend.
