Yesterday started with pumpkin pancakes. (Actually, it started with a walk to our polling site, voting and THEN pumpkin pancakes.)
I actually need to blog that recipe because it’s really good – and the last two times we’ve had pancakes, they’ve been pumpkin. Perfect for fall.
After a few errands, we gathered everyone and headed downtown to check things out. We were originally going to go to Loretta’s for lunch, and then decided Woolworths would be better for seating and variety.
A few of us sat at the counter, while the others grabbed a table.
There was a lot of perusing while waiting for lunch to be made. (There are art booths set up throughout with a lot of local artists’ work.) And after lunch, we checked out more artists downstairs, where grandma decided to try a hat on in one of the booths.
We then wandered out of Woolworths, and towards Pack Square Park. Everyone loved the buildings. (They never get old to me.)
Our county building (on the left) and city hall (on the right), with the park in front of the buildings.
I love the little water features throughout the park.
And the statues.
We took some time to rest….
…before wandering again. The dome is actually First Baptist Church of Asheville (where my mom and other grandma are members.)
We then found Thomas Wolfe’s home…
…and I realized I’m not the only one in my family who loves the cell phone.
I really love the Jackson building.
And I think the Kress building is pretty, though I never get good photos of it.
I don’t know if I’ll ever understand how our city is able to sustain a wig shop.
It was a good day, followed by a busy, busy day at Biltmore (today.) Lots of photos coming this week from that visit.
