One of the most beautiful lakes in the country is a short drive from my home. The Appalachian Mountains and the Cherokee National Forest hug the shores of Watauga Lake. It is the TVA’s highest-elevated reservoir in Tennessee. Surrounded by densely forested mountains, Watauga Lake sits 1,959 feet above sea level.
The lake is a splendid location for sailing because of the challenge of wind direction changes created by the mountains. It is also the perfect place to have a picnic, kayak, paddleboard, fish, waterski, hike, or snap photos for your blog.
As always, my adventure partner and I dressed in classic, comfortable favorites to stay warm for our drive by the lake on a sunny but brisk day. Our date included getting take-out from Gourmet & Company for a lovely evening meal in my home.
This week, I’m giving away the beautiful scarf pictured below in warm earthy blue and tan tones. It measures fifty-two inches across, and it is a very soft georgette fabric that can be worn even in summer. Leave a comment below to enter the giveaway. Mr. Mickey will randomly choose a comment, and I’ll announce the winner on Thursday as I share another local adventure with you.
