On our Land That We Love Tour we stayed at a beautiful home on Hickory Lake in North Carolina while we attended wedding festivities. There were 10 of us in this home. One morning we enjoyed watching this blue heron.
On Sunday after 4 full days in this home we packed up our car again and had to use our Tetras skills to get it all to fit. We headed west on Interstate 40 through the Appalachians in North Carolina and along the Smokey Mountains into Tennessee and all the way to Jackson for the night.
Dear needed coffee along the way and we stopped at a local favorite restaurant called Amelia’s and it was a good experience.
On the road again we traveled through some incredible thunderstorms and downpours that slowed us way down because of no visibility. Several accidents had the freeway backed up for miles. Most of the accidents were on I-40 going east which was fortunate for us. We were so happy to finally get to clear skies and dry roads. We thanked God for bringing us safely to our destination.
As I typed this on Sunday evening our kids were in the air headed home to Washington State.
Today Monday we drive 534 miles to Dallas, Texas. That should take us close to 8 hours.
Hope all is well with all of you dear friends!
