We took a ride this weekend to Highlands, North Carolina, for the monthly outing of our community’s sports car club. It’s about an hour and a half trip, with lots of twists and turns, and beautiful fall leaves at their peak. The scenery was spectacular.
When we woke up and looked out our front window we were greeted with an amazing display of sunbeams and color. Our smart phone cameras couldn’t do it justice, of course. Then we met near the entrance to our community to coordinate our ride…
We headed out about 10:00 am and arrived just in time for an early lunch at Wild Thyme on Main Street in Highlands…
We enjoyed our lunch at Wild Thyme, thanks to great friends, good food and terrific service. Our waitress treated us exceptionally well, despite the large number of guests with lots of special requests. If you haven’t taken the time to enjoy the beautiful fall foliage in the Blue Ridge Mountains, try to do it this week. The leaves are gorgeous! Here’s what they look like today from my driveway…
Over 100 MINI Coopers registered for the MINIpalooza in Asheville, North Carolina, recently. They came from up and down the east coast and as far away as California.
We’ve seen and heard the slogan “Not Normal” in our MINI club, and we’re starting to understand it. There was even a pair of these riding as passengers in one of the cars…
The drivers were Not Normal, too. The biggest Miniac (as they call themselves) was our lead driver, who definitely looked and drove like a Miniac…
Some of us were glad when the Diamondback portion of our tour was over (and very thankful we didn’t wreck or get a ticket!). We took a break at an overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The view was spectacular…
We got back to Asheville just in time for dinner, which was sponsored by Flow MINI from Winston-Salem. Their motoring advisor, service manager and service technician answered lots of questions about our fun little cars…
The next big MINI event hosted by the Tar Heel Mini Club will be the MINIs Slay the Sleeping Dragon (MSSD) at the Tail of the Dragon, October 24-26, 2014. We’ll see you there… to take pictures (sorry, we can’t keep up).
Visiting and reviewing inns, restaurants, and attractions in the Blue Ridge Mountains is a rough job, but I guess someone’s got to do it (ha!). Now it’s going to be even more fun, tooling the highways and byways in our Chili-Red Mini Cooper!
