I was on my own today and SpaBoy had the day off...
So we escaped to Asheville!
And, to Biltmore Estate!
When we arrived in Asheville it was a chilly 32
degrees so we took an early tour inside the house!
But after lunch, after it warmed up a bit, we took the architect's tour!
And spent an hour or so poking around the roof tops of Biltmore!
I enjoyed it as much this time as I did the first time!
Some people own timeshares...
We have Biltmore!
What we pay for our annual pass is kinda like our maintenance fee!
When it comes to get-aways close to home...
Nothing beats Asheville and Biltmore!
SpaBoy and I weren't even out the door before
we began planning our next visit and tour!
It's called the premium tour and for $135 per person,
you get to choose the areas of the house you want to see!
High on SpaBoy's list is the organ loft...
High on my list are George and Edith's bathrooms!
Biltmore was as beautiful as ever today. And, just like
our visit around this time last year, the Ranger is
deployed again and we ran into another wedding party!
My favorite visits to Biltmore have been
the ones when mom and dad were with us...
Everywhere I look there are happy
memories of time spent here with them!
Seems like just yesterday they were here to enjoy
the Biltmore Spring flower festival with us...
I can't believe that was already six months ago...
But... The planting beds at Biltmore never lie!
I hope you're having an amazing weekend too!
