Gorges (gorgeous)

For my birthday, my parents took a picnic basket to the Veranda, a wonderful soup and sandwich place in Black Mountain owned by an old friend of mine. They paid for lunch for two and let us know it was there whenever we wanted it. All we had to do was call in our lunch orders and pick it up.

This was a pretty wonderful gift — buying us a lovely lunch, but more importantly encouraging and reminding us to take a day off and go have a picnic.  Last Saturday we took our picnic out to Gorges State Park, a bit east of Brevard, and spent the day hiking, lounging and staring at the water, not to mention enjoying a great picnic.  Oh, and of course we brought our Travel Scrabble board.  

Here are a few pictures (yep, having fun with the new camera):
