I posted Part 1 (about our trip up to Asheville to see daughter's dance performance) two weeks ago, and, even though I had the photos ready, I never got back to posting them.
The plan was that we would drop daughter off at her dorm at 4 pm so that she could get her work done and we could get home by about 8:30 pm. However, after dropping her off, we realized that we needed a bathroom, and the Asheville Botanical Garden was just around the corner so we'd just stop there for a minute.
You know we can't just stop in briefly at a garden:
Dear husband, off to do some sketching while younger son and I wandered. Here is his sketch post.
We left the Garden in time to get home by 9:30. However...
... as we were approaching the town of Black Mountain, where we stayed for a wonderful vacation two years ago, I mentioned that, if we were younger and had less sense, I'd suggest a walk around Lake Tomahawk. Dear husband said that he had been wanting to take a walk there and that we'd be tired whether we got home by 9:30 or 10:30. Younger son, actually, almost was the only voice of reason, but he decided he'd like to take a walk too.
It was beautiful there:

We got home at 10:30, but we had a wonderful day.
