1st day of our Dragon Trip

Richard and I are taking a trip to Asheville then to the Tail of the Dragon then to West Tenneessee. On our first day we stopped here for lunch ***** five stars, we had bbq, baked beans and peanut butter cake, yummy. not too far from home that we could not go back for a good dinner.

Forcast is calling for heavy chance of rain over the next five days straight through TN. We decided to start with the top on just in case. Looks like the weather man may be right this time. grey skies ahead, should we be worried? I wonder how many other guys will show up for the ride on the dragon.
well, on second thought there are blue skies ahead. Maybe we will get lucky, so far we've not gotten any rain.
After we checked in the hotel, since we were early we (well Richard decided, I wanted to take a nap) to drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We didn't get very far before it started sprinkling and then a downpour. It was so foggy we could hardly see, Richard was driving about 20 MPH to be safe, it never changed brightness even through the tunnels. Once we got back to the hotel, we had to hang out our clothes to dry them out.
One other couple met up and we went to Fatz with them. We had a nice time talking with them and decided for a early night to get some sleep.
