Dear husband and I went for an early anniversary trip.* We had breakfast at the City Bakery early Saturday morning, and then we wandered around downtown Asheville before all the stores opened. I enjoyed doing this when I was visiting daughter back in June. It's calm and peaceful, you can really see the architecture because there are fewer people and cars, and the people downtown, in some ways, are more diverse than later in the day.

The statues closer up
* Because it's warmer in September than in mid-February.
