Yay we made it! We are in Greenville. Yesterday we had a lovely drive through the Appalacians. It was really beautiful.
It was kind of a thrill seeing signs with names I’d heard of all my life like “Cumberland Gap” and “Chatanooga” and “Blue Ridge Mountains” but these particular “Blue ridge Mountains” weren’t in Kentucky, they were in North Carolina.
Now these past 3 days I have been to a bunch of states I have never been to before, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennesee. I think I have been in North Carolina before.
How beautiful is that?
So we made it to lovely Greenville, and got into the hotel. We are finding out that we love La Quinta hotels, they are reasonable and really have everything you could need – including a guest laundry room!
Jessie, Allen, Allen and Ian were away for the weekend, so we spent the morning vegging in the hotel and washing laundry. The we met with the realtor at our new rental house to pick up the keys. It’s a cute little place, plenty big enough and the yard care is included – woo hoo. then we drove around Greenville a little, had lunch at Sonic, (which I’ve been wanting to try fopr a couple of years since we were in New Mexico last) it was OK, then we came back here to the hotel where we are now on an official veg, computing, sleeping, enjoying the AC, ZZZZZZZZZ
