Kerr Scott Reservoir COE
First a little news from the house back in Clayton. Nope, it ain’t sold yet but the money pit hits from a distance. Remember the beaver that gnawed on a tree? Well the wind blew one part of it over.
That wasn’t so bad. My neighbor Mark and his son Jordan took care of that for us. They are great folks and I miss them. The next photos that Mark sent us are the real deal as far as having a tree down. We had one large oak tree in the back yard and it was uprooted during a hard thunderstorm a couple of days ago.
Mark met with a tree service guy for us and it will be cut up and the root ball ground up in the next few days. I also told our realtor who went over to check it out. She said the same thing that Mark did…it couldn’t have landed in a more perfect place. There was no other damage and it didn’t really land in the water which would have made it hard to get out. We’re blessed in that respect.
Now a little bit about Pam’s visit. She is Gin’s cousin who joined us this weekend for a little fun in the hills of NC. We spent a little time at the visitor center and went to the Mountain View Overlook to kid around a bit.
We also drove through the nice upscale but crowded downtown of Blowing Rock on our way back down the mountain. We just had to stop at this nice roadside stand and get some goodies.
We ended the day by going to watch “Tom Dooley: a Wilkes County Legend”. It’s an outdoor drama that was presented at the amphitheater in the Fort Hamby CG across the lake.
It was an interesting story of a womanizing man set in the 1860’s. Nothing like a lover’s triangle that leads to murder to make for an interesting show. Here’s a little background link to Tom Dooley. Bad things happened back then too.
Thanks for dropping by and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.
