Happy D-Days from Brevard, North Carolina!!
My alma mater had their 100th annual homecoming celebration this past weekend. As much as it killed me not to be in Vermillion toasting a Bloody Mary with my USD friends at Carey’s, I was able to visit someone just as special to me. Our destination: Brevard, North Carolina! Why?…Because we both wanted to go somewhere we had never been and I was wanted a reprieve from big-city living. D.F. is a HUGE city, and I have really been missing the simple pleasures; the peace and quiet of smaller town life, having the ability to get in a car and drive with cruise control, and wide open spaces. Because D.F. also has mild/somewhat perfect weather year-round, I have also been missing the change in the leaves during fall. Therefore, Brevard was perfect for a fall getaway! Brevard is near the entrances of Pigsah National Forest and DuPont State Forest, so we were able to see a lot of waterfalls and drive along the Blue Ridge Mountain Parkway. Here’s a few photos from our weekend.
All in all, it was so wonderful to visit the great views, cozy town, wonderful food, and the best company…I don’t think I could’ve asked for anything better.
