So Long Asheville

Julie’s Note: I started this post Oct 29th. I drafted it and left it, and them got caught up with learning to live in a camper and then with blogging 101. So I’m backtracking and adding it to track our whereabouts since we left.

Although our stay in Asheville, NC was short we did have an eventful time here. Well, Monday wasn’t especially action packed. It’s starting to look as though the first day in a place is just getting settled and getting some real work done. As in, our jobs. Yes, we really are working!

But yesterday…. Yesterday we worked a few hours at the laundromat while doing a few loads. Then we drove out to a local running store to ask about a good running route. The guy at Foot Rx was very helpful! A beautiful trail run on the Blue Ridge Parkway!

But the real fun came that afternoon when we went on the Asheville Brews Cruise. Our guide, JC, was exceptionally knowledgeable about beer and the beer making process! He took Our small group of four to three local breweries where we tasted several of their beers and got to see their beer making facilities. Our newlywed tour mates, Tim and Mary from Indiana, were a fantastic fun!

After the tour few needed some sustenance and Asheville happens to have a great food scene in addition to beer. We headed to Curate, an authentic Spanish tapas bar. Delicious! I MUST stop when in Asheville!

We had way too little time in Asheville, but we will be back!
