Asheville Trip Part II

Hi Ladies!

Hope you all had a great weekend. We are winding down on the trip and this is our last week here. We have enjoyed so many culinary delights, discovered new vineyards with the pups, loafed through this artsy city, and enjoyed the mountains through walks in the woods and it’s views.

Just one of the views of “SkyBar” a bar off the rooftop and on a fire escape of one of the tall buildings in Asheville. You can’t beat the view! We had a great time!

Today I am just giving you a bit more of our trip, and will be back with Turning Heads Tuesday and more fashion tomorrow. If one is thinking of going to Asheville, it is a great place with so much to enjoy.

Most of the pictures here are from my Instagram Account, so if you wish to follow, do so HERE.

See the first set of Asheville pictures in my post ” A Small Glimpse of Asheville HERE.

I will be back with more fashion pictures tomorrow, at #turningheadstuesday linkup!

A Vineyard called ” Burnt Shirt” Vineyard named after a mountain, it was one of the first places we went when visiting. You know how I love my wine tasting!

Lovely grounds, and an equally excellent educational tasting, they let the pups come into the tasting room. Gibson and Truffles lay on the floor and soon became “greeters” for the people that came in. They were so good! Their Reisling had won awards, and to my suprise I enjoyed it as it had just a hint of sweetness, not so sweet as come can be. My favorites of the whites tend to be those in a stainless steel barrel as opposed to Oak. We sat outside after the tasting and enjoyed a picnic lunch.

Some Wine Art at the Vineyard. I want one!

One of our first of many restaurants we enjoyed in Asheville. Carate is a place for Tapas and homemade Sangria. This dish was a favorite of mine, with lightly fried white eggplant with honey and rosemary. I could actually do this at home! The sangria we ordered was quite different and a must have as they used many herbs and fruits to make this fresh drink .

Pack’s Tavern, a bit of a landmark in Asheville is one of the restaurants we visited when we were here last for the fall’s annual Asheville Film Festival. Ron Howard was one of the judges of the films one year. This old classic truck is always parked out in the front.

A picture of the mountains off the Blue Ridge Parkway. We experienced some beautiful views and hiked in the mountains, with the cool fresh mountain air. We enjoyed Mt Pisgah and hiked several trails in the area, the Mt Pisgah trail being one of them.

Just a small portion of the whimsical garden that made up the area in which we stayed. in Fletcher, NC, just 25 minutes from Downtown Asheville. There is almost 1 acre of garden and beautiful landscaping at our cottage house.

Another view from Skybar, seeing Asheville at night. A busy Asheville nighlife!

Just one outfit I wore in the town. If we were in the cottage, I was laid back with a tank top and shorts, going out I wore some dresses, one being the one I shared here last week.
