Our Favorite Heat Retreat



Our favorite place to quickly beat the southern summer heat? Blowing Rock, North Carolina. 


 Vistas to swoon over.




Castles of clouds to daydream under.




Hydrangeas that impersonate the cerulean sky.




Kilwins ice cream. Enough said.




An old fashioned park in the center of town overflowing with childhood wonder.


But my treasured highlight is the Blowing Rock Community Library. Great reads from their library book sale are affordable, beautiful, functional keepsakes. 


A Lake Norman sunset provides a final touch on a fabulous day. Where is your special retreat to beat the heat? Have you visited their library? Please share.
