We awake to find a light layer of fog on the water in front of Popeye. Isn't it great to be able to enjoy something so special? I went outside and stood in front of Popeye to take these pictures.
Mary & Pete, whose house is the red roof you see peeking out of the trees in the photos above, then took us on a wonderful tour of Lake Lure. I wasn't at all familiar with Lake Lure, but read National Geographic listed it as one of the top ten most beautiful man made lakes in the world!
Here is part of the marina and Pete getting ready to take us out in his boat.
As we toured around the lake, we took these pictures of some pretty spectacular homes along the shore. Rock masons must do very well in this area!
Along one small cove in the lake, Mary points out the turtles. It's almost as though they posed for us!
Lots of ducks & geese too, but the houses are pretty awesome. These are a smattering of the more interesting ones, at least to us, not necessarily the biggest & showiest. And of course the small charming ones were so hidden away, a good picture is pretty impossible.
The next morning, Mary & Pete graciously allow us to tour their home. Pictures don't do it justice, and Mary, an artist, has done a wonderful job decorating. Enjoy!
We say a fond farewell and I take a great picture of them in front of their fireplace before our departure.
