Carolina in my MindCarolina In My Mind

This has been the summer of travel and many trips involved early morning jaunts through the beautiful mountains of North Carolina.

North Carolina Mountains Oh, be still my heart.

A gentle fog, green peaks and valleys, and a fresh lavender sky. Nothing but the hum of the car engine and quiet thoughts that gently appear and slip away. Peace. Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning.

Long, lazy afternoons – reading, swinging in the hammock, cooking out. The colors are beginning to turn, but summer gives it one last shot before acquiescing to the crisp, cool fall air.
