A Fantastic Time!

October 31, 2011

I hadn’t taken a vacation for a long while, and last weekend was wonderful! Now and again it’s important to get away, just to realize there’s more to life than just work, and more to the world than just home and the office. A group of us went to Brevard, NC and took pics of some of the local waterfalls. On the way there some of us stopped at Biltmore (it was raining, so no pics–sorry!) and enjoyed the house for a little bit.

The waterfalls themselves where quite a climb. Our poor organizer, Rob, probably isn’t going to hear the end of it for quite a while; he’d promised that there were just a few hills, or that some of the waterfalls were only about 20 minutes away. Well, maybe for someone who was *fit*, but for the rest of us shlubs, it was a climb!

And “a little hill” usually doesn’t need ropes for people to hold on to, for crying out loud….

But! Despite being forced to (shudder) exercise, the weekend was quite nice! It only rained Friday, and the rest of the time was gorgeous. Saturday night some of the photographers decided to try astro-photography, and I tagged along to do some stargazing. And that beautiful experience reminded me of the importance of living now and then.

    I did not know you could take such good pictures. You could have done my wedding photos if you had your camera then. I can’t wait to see more.
