Having the right tools for the task is important. 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.
Many of you often request suggestions for nice looking comfortable shoes, so I created this catalog for you. Click on the arrow to the right to see more. The first shoe is a trainer. Several people asked me what that was when I mentioned them in a previous post.
