Jordan Lake

Stopped for a couple of nights just outside of Raleigh/Durham at a state recreational area called Jordan Lake, with several enormous campgrounds that are wooded and largely lakeside - very nice. We selected a site which has the most space either side, and its worked out nicely (=quieter dogs).:

The lake is large enough for boating, waterskiing, etc, and is already warm enough to swim in, at least for children and northerners, or should I say Yankees:

Now that we're inland the bugs are more present, and I'll be damned if I'm going to put up with it any longer!

The smoke from the campfire kept them nicely at bay, so I could cook my dinner of barbequed country ribs without being dinner myself:

Today we drive to the Asheville area, and will spend some time there before heading into the Smoky Mountains.

  1. dear Nancy and Matthew, there is a lot of art and artist in this part of the world. If you are interested you may want to look into it. Tons of potters too...
