IMG_6984We went on a field trip with our friends Mary and Steve. Over a glass of wine recently we started hatching plans for a fun day and since none of us had ever visited the Carl Sandburg Home near Hendersonville we chose that as our starting point. Entering the unpretentious home of this fascinating family was to step back into 1967 and into the lives of Sandburg, his wife, daughters, and granddaughters. It was fascinating and all four of us want to go back there again. Next stop was Hannah Flannagan’s for Irish pub fare for lunch and the McFarlan Bakery for dessert and coffee. Yum! Then on to Burnt Shirt Winery and a tour of the facility guided by the wine maker himself followed by a wine tasting. Every trip to the Asheville area must involve a stop by Earth Fare which yielded us a few pints of Graeter’s Ice Cream and as we neared home we stopped by Barber Orchard to pick up a few apples! An educational, fun, fruitful day!

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
