Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. ~Proverbs 16:13
Danny and I have traveled for years to different Watershed cabins located in the Nantahala Mountains of North Carolina. We know the route like the backs of our hands, and we have special places we like to stop along the way.
Usually, our lunch spot is at Chick-fil-A in Ellijay, Georgia. But when Virginia a Longhorn in the vicinity, she asks if we can eat there instead. The reason? She wants to try their lava cake she's heard so much about. So, after she finishes her lunch, Papa orders one for her, not realizing the sheer size of it!
At least, the waitress brings three spoons, but even with all of us taking bites, it's impossible to conquer, much like our ice cream in downtown Kennesaw. When did establishments start over-sizing desserts?
Our next pitstop is a beautiful and serene rest area in Andrews, North Carolina. We stopped there with Virginia on her first trip with us to the cabin, Nantahala Gorgeous.
And here we are in June of this year! You can tell by the photos that it's the same season of our initial visit. Isn't it a serene and lovely place?
Unlike our first trip with Virginia, we don't stop at the Nantahala Outdoor Center to watch the rafters; it's simply way too crowded! We opt to just keep going to our destination - Big Sky Lodge.
Ironically, this is the cabin we originally stayed in when Danny's heart rate dropped so low, we ended up at the Bryson City hospital and had to be transported by ambulance to Asheville; Danny needed emergency surgery to install a life-saving pacemaker! As you can imagine, I am less than thrilled to be returning to the "scene of the crime," but this was the only cabin available during the time we'd planned for this trip. You can read all about those harrowing adventures here.
Fortunately for us, this visit is filled with happy memories and breathtaking views.
Tomorrow, we plan to pack our lunches and head out to Clingman's Dome, the highest peak in the Great Smoky Mountains! Won't you tag along with us?
