On Sunday, we went to the Lexington Avenue Arts and Fun Festival (LAFF) in downtown Asheville.
I loved Downtown Books and News - good overall, it also had a wonderful science fiction/fantasy section (and was a nice break from the crowds).
The Botanical Gardens at Asheville are right next to UNC-A, making them quite popular with students.
As I just found out a few minutes ago, it turns out that their website says that wading is discouraged. It must be only mildly discouraged because there were no signs there saying that, and there were a number of sets of stairs to help one get down to the water.
On the way home: Winston-Salem in the setting sun.
