Well…we also went to Lake Lure yesterday which is located really close to Chimney Rock. This was one of the ares where the popular movie “Dirty Dancing” was filmed and even though all the buildings are gone, we could see some ruins!
From the movie..
The Stairs…22 years later.
I’ve finally been to Chimney Rock after about 3 years of waiting!! I was around that area ’06 but since the weather was REALLY crappy (stormy – rain and thunder/lightnings) we didn’t make it to the rock. For more info, check out their website.
The African-Carribean Festival we were visiting yesterday in the hot weather…phu. It was amazing and so much fun!!
The Street Fair Area – with food and all different things to buy in an African-Carribean style
(jewelry, t-shirts, crafts…)
We bought a couple a games last night and started to play. Love it – music, wine, games and my love.
Plans for today: Goombay! – An African/Carribean Festival downtown Asheville consisting of music, dancing and food! Oh, yeah. Bring it on! I am excited, big time!! Gotta finish my cup of coffee and get dressed.

This is my outfit today. I’m off.
Know it’s a bit blurry…but don’t have the energy to work on it right now.
Another thing I love is to watch movies!
We watched “(500) Days of Summer” last Friday and today we’ll gonna see “Julie&Julia“
Where we always go to watch movies. Pics from here.

Gotta get ready. Cloudy and a bit boring weather today so we’re going to an afternoon show!
I love candles and these are just a few of all we have.
After my love got off from work yesterday, we decided to drive to Lake Junaluska (about 30 min drive from here). It’s a Methodist conference and retreat center. The area is really beautiful and yesterday was a really silent and relaxed day since the season is sort of over and people are back to work. Anyway…check it out!
On our way
Leaving the apartment building.
Going to the car.
The Chapel from a different angle.
Touching and smelling the flowers.
The Peace Pole (the same sentence in different languages is writtten around the pole).
It was a pretty warm day… (The Chapel).
The Rose Walk.
We decided to surprice my love’s parents (who live just a 5 min drive from the spot where I took the last picture). So we did…and we all ended up at a Mexican restaurant later with plenty of deep discussions about health care systems in the States and Sweden, the senator’s death..and so on. Good end of the day.
We have found our new favorite at Starbucks!
