While Charlotte & I were on our birthday trip, we stayed at Mitchell Lodge in Highlands, NC. It’s an old lodge that has been in the same family since 1937, and was just lovely. It was on a beautiful piece of property right outside of town – lots of open space to rest and relax in, including a Secret Place – a beautiful little gazebo/balcony type thing overlooking the mountain stream that ran through the progperty. There are the steps that led down to it. Plus the weather was absolutely gorgeous Saturday morning when we were out explroing.
We spent the morning out exploring the curvy mountain roads of the area, with the very loose goal of finding the World’s Smallest Post Office. It took a while, but we finally lucked up on it. Of course I loved reading the history of it that was displayed on its (very small) wall.
