Vacationing in the mountains (Part 1)

Posted by erin matthews on

Mr. Panda and I just got back from a vacation in North Carolina. It was one of those trips where a lot went wrong, but maybe it will make the vacation more memorable overall. This first part will be just a few of the photos I took. (Don't worry, I won't post the thousands I took over the entire course of the trip. Trust me when I say that I have more than 2,000 to look through!)

We started our vacation in Kentucky and then drove through Tennessee to North Carolina.

One of our favorite places in North Carolina is Panacea Coffee Co. in Waynesville. We go multiple times in a trip. The coffee is great and they have a very friendly cat who doesn't care if you're allergic...

We stayed in Waynesville (the same place we stayed at a couple of years ago) and this new Greenway was just a few minutes from our house.

That's all for today. I'll work on Part 2, which will be more photos, and have it up next Monday. Any questions or comments? Leave them below!


  • Beautiful pictures! I hope Cricket doesn’t find out that not only did you not take her with you, but you were hanging out with a cat.
