Springtime - Easter Weekend- Asheville, North Carolina
|Top Row Center would me me taking in the incredible sights-|
This is indeed a first for me. I am almost positive I have never crossed over/or stopped in the state of North Carolina. The only possible time I might have [but cannot remember] would have been in 1959, driving south to Alabama [ from Virginia Beach Virginia ] after Ted had finished his four year U.S. Navy obligation. In that case I think I can be forgiven for not remembering since 55 years have passed since that early milestone in our lives.

|Last Day Last outing before heading south The Billy Graham Training Center The Cove/The Chapel here|
A leisure go at your own pace tour soaking in Creation and the wonderful Chapel- a short drive from Asheville, N.C.
Inside the Chapel Mrs K enjoys a comfortable pew with great view while others casually make mental notes and take a few photos . Reagan & his Dad were drawn to the pulpit area & made a sweet memory standing in the pulpit, sitting in the "big chairs " and just taking it all in with the huge
window as a background. The K Sisters could not resist trying out the Baby Grand thinking of all the notable, memorable musicians who had played in that special place.
Bottom left: While Mrs. K relaxed the rest of us climbed the steep stairway to the PRAYER ROOM- Yes, of course we circled with our volunteer guide and prayed before leaving.

|Yes, It is obvious they are ALL TALLER than Me...even the youngest Grandson|
It's time to head south to Alabama & we are leaving with memories of special loved ones, so much fun, stories, tooooo much food ! A sincere heartfelt thank you to our hosts, Sue and Brian -Such ah-mazing hospitality ! Wishing those who left earlier could have been there too! [Missing: Don & Trish and Karla & Greg ]
