Jared wanted to go to the mountains for spring break. So we loaded up him and some friends and headed for Boone. They wormed their way into an Annuals concert and then the next morning we all went our own ways, shopping and eating our way up to Blowing Rock.
If I could live in two places, the second place would be Blowing Rock. If you haven't been there, it's a mountain village with all sorts of small shops and some decent eateries. Lots of local art, especially now that a new shop has opened up called ArtWalk.
Visiting Blowing Rock is like going back to the 50's where you sense that everyone in town knows one another's names. It's also time for trout fishing, so time to pull out my weighters and lures.
