The Friday before Memorial Day is National Road Trip Day. Thus, today we officially kick off the summer road trip season on this day. Millions of Americans hit the road for the long weekend to visit friends and family while paying tribute to our American military heroes.
With a grateful nod to all those who gave their lives in service to this country, I say a never-ending “thank you” for sacrificing time, health, wealth, and lives to help all of us enjoy the opportunities that freedom provides.
One of them is travel and time with friends. So, I happily share photos from our little road trip to Lake Lure, North Carolina with great friends Janice Gilbert and Jim Lurvey.
We enjoyed a splendid day on the water amidst the stunning scenery in one of the Blue Ridge Mountains’ gorgeous gorges. No wonder that “Dirty Dancing” filmmakers among many others have selected this lake and area to serve as backdrops.
And seeing Chimney Rock is always sweet. I also enjoy how much the area reminds me of home in New Hampshire.
Enjoy wherever your next road trip takes you. Travel safely. Appreciate freedom.
