Corner view is a weekly Wednesday gathering, originally hosted by Jane, now by Francesca. A topic is given and you can see impressions; be it photographic or writerly in form, from around the world. Come see the world’s corner view via the links on the sidebar- they have that magical ability to be fully here and simultaneously somewhere else all in the same moment!
To be honest, I’m not certain if this place is well described in the guidebooks, but it is our family’s go-to quick vacation and I’m certain it isn’t up there in terms of destination bucket lists as say:The Biltmore Estates or Asheville, NC as a whole. Our go to overnight or quick get away that is so very special to us is found in the Flat Rock/Hendersonville area of North Carolina. There are lovely apple orchards, bakeries- old school and new, stellar BBQ, ice cream, a little children’s museum, a bit of literary history and a sweet little Lodge that has a lake outfitted with boats and an outdoor pool. It’s nothing fancy, but traveling with 3 small ones, what it offers fits the bill- all set in the picturesque foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains! Which if you have ever spent a summer in the US’s southern region- you will appreciate the opportunities this community affords to cool off- and then come fall truck back up for more site-seeing!
