Driving through town

 A fun juxtaposition of a sweet sign (Hey Hey Cupcakes) and a earth moving vehicle being carted behind a flat-bed truck, making it look as if it's flying


Everybody stops in the center of town, no matter which way you're going, it's just standard to expect about 2-3 minutes wait, or sometimes up to 6 minutes as the lights cycle through and pedestrians eventually get their chance to cross US 70 or NC 9, aka State St. and Montreat Rd.

When I got to my admittedly favorite restaurant with an order waiting for my take-out, there was this extraordinary vehicle parked there. I dare say it is a patron, rather than someone who works there! It's nice to think that people who run around in this money-absorbing gas-guzzler eat much the same food that I do.

The weather was just beautiful, our first day of fall. Here's the hidden Welcome to Black Mountain sign, with beautiful flowers at least!

I had stimulated my appetite by walking around Lake Tomahawk earlier with a friend. More on that in another post.


  1. Hello,
    A walk around the lake and lunch sound lovely. The flowers look beautiful around the town's welcome sign.
    Take care, enjoy your day. Have a happy weekend!

  2. ...I'm happy to drive my 11 year old SUV!

  3. Looks like a brilliant day! Like Tom's comment, I drive an old SUV. Great for road trips!


Hi, I'm glad to publish your comments. Let's keep it civil, shall we?
