This morning, our Tennessee hostess Pam took us to her church, Indian Springs Baptist, for a service that featured contemporary music and a preacher who rocked. Church is a central part of Pam’s life and I was happy she wanted to show us what it was like. Afterward, we bid goodbye to Pam after an amazing weekend. Her hospitality and warmth are impossible to beat. She totally rocks!
We drove down to Asheville, North Carolina. It was nice to be back on the road in the RV. We still have to so much RV life to experience. I was bleary-eyed when we arrived in Asheville, but I wanted to see the town. Asheville is progressive and kinda hippie-ish (see street mural above). We walked around the shops and art galleries for an hour or two, and bought some provisions at the local natural food store. We saw a dog in the window of a closed store (see below). My favorite place was Mast, a huge, old-fashioned general store that sold all manner of stuff. We drove outside of Asheville to a campground that featured a lake. We actually arrived before dark. A miracle! The campground wasn’t as pretty or woodsy as our campground the first night, but the people who ran it were super-friendly, and it was good to be ‘home’ for the night. Lights out.
