Having the right tools for the task is essential. Shoes can make all the difference if you are going for a night on the town, hiking, or even standing a lot at work.
On Saturday, we took the long scenic drive on back roads over to Weaverville to have dinner at the Glass Onion. Along the way, we took a detour through our newest State Park, Rocky Fork. I am so grateful that we are preserving this treasured piece of land for others to enjoy.
Since day one as a blogger, I have gotten negative comments about my shoe choices. If I wear heels, I am told I shouldn’t. If I wear flats, I am told I look frumpy. Shoes are strictly a personal choice, as are handbags. I enjoy wearing heels, but I do not wear them when what I will be doing requires a different type of shoe. Note: The photos of the park above were taken from the car. I will be hiking to a waterfall later this week, but I do have the proper gear for that task. Shown below are my new hiking shoes and socks. I have hiked many portions of the Appalachian Trail alone, and I am a PADI Certified Open Water Diver, so I know the importance of having the correct gear for what you are doing. (A knife is a vital tool when you are far away from civilization, be it underwater or on land.)
I will share more about our delightful evening in Weaverville with you on Wednesday because this post was getting much too long to include everything here.
