N.C Trip 016

Hello every one; well we are finally here, this is how it looked when we left on Sat. morning. It seemed to follow us all the way.. But the closer we came South the sunshine popped out.. I took some photos along the way, to show you all. It is very pretty down here,,,, or is it over here.. lol any way it was a long trip.

I tried to get some good pictures from the truck so I hope you can see them fairly well, just click to make them larger to  see them better... I took lots so I don't remember where we were, but I will try,,,,,, lol  you know me;;;;;;;;;;;;;;  for the most part they are all of N.C.

I just had to take a photo of this Memorial, it is so great to see them honored like this.  I hope you can read what is says,,,  oh and if you look real hard you can see me taking the photo,,, I'm in the hat........ 

N.C Trip 027

Now this was inside the Welcome Center rest stop in Tenn. Now I had to run back to the truck and grab my camera to get a shot of this... Wow what a Welcome....... 

N.C Trip 035

Don't remember the name of this beautiful river, but I do remember where it was,,,,,  Tenn..   I had to be fast with taking the pictures, it was hard to capture some really great ones, going 70 mph....  I asked hubby to stop and pull over so I could get some better shots,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, but for some reason he did not want to on a 4 lane interstate,,,,,,, well I didn't see anything wrong with that,  would you?????? 

N.C Trip 046

Oh look a tunnel under the mountain. It was not very long,,, good thing too made me a little nervous.  We went through two of them.

OK  I just love how they make it so simple to decide which way to go, don't you.......

N.C Trip 039

In some area's along the way you could see mist coming off the mountains, they are so pretty...  ok I will stop with the photos now...  It was so hard to say good bye to my grand kids and kids, my oldest Daughter Heather spent the last night with us before we left, she was such a huge help in getting a few things packed. Then she sat by me on the sofa most of the night, and wept some,,,, we have not been apart like this. It is hard on her, and for Chas, but when the Lord says here is where I want you to be,,, well we have to go.     Hubby and I found a great Apartment Complex to rent from,,, when we start getting some $$ saved. It is so close to his work that he could walk to it... I will do a post on it soon.  Well ladies that is about it for now, I hope you enjoyed my post and photos...  Thank you all for the kind well wishes and safe travels, you are the best......  Until next time; God Bless;

So happy you made it safe and sound. The highways are so green and full of pretty trees, I just love that. Where I live we have lots of cement walls on our highways. I would have run back to the car too for my camera to take the picture of those cute rockers by the fireplace.
Enjoy you new little nest, it will feel like home in no time once you put all your beautiful things out.
Take care,

Congratulations on your husband's job! My husband looked for a year, and then we had to move from Dallas to Vermont. Every single day I wish we were in North Carolina, Texas or somewhere down south.

It is so hard to know what to do about this job thing. I wish you the best. North Carolina is beautiful and the weather is great! It is too...take it from a southern girl convert who now lives at the north pole! :-)

Glad you made it safe. I really enjoyed seeing the pictures of your drive. You were driving in areas I have never been to, so it is fun to see it through the eye of your camera. The tunnel picture reminds me of the tunnel you go through after going North on the Golden Gate Bridge out of San Francisco. It looks very much like the picture you took. Tunnels make me nervous too.
