Travelling Blue Ridge, Georgia – Day 3: Farewell
If you missed Day 1 of our trip to Blue Ridge, Georgia, you can visit that post here. And, if you missed Day 2 of our trip, you can visit that post here. Travelling Blue Ridge, Georgia wouldn’t be complete without me showing you my going home travel outfit, so here are two more “aerial photos” by Big T, LOL. This is in the lobby of our hotel as we were leaving and he was in a hurry for me to “get out of the way”; again, I embarrass him in public, ha!
Do not miss my “After Dinner Story” near the end of this post.
Comfort comes first for travelling in the car. This is just a basic lime green t-shirt I have had for a while along with my Old Navy super skinny white jeans. I had to wear my new jazzy wedges that I bought on Day 1 of our trip, you can read about the shoes and that day here.
I also wore the sturdy flat, gold-filled wire wrapped bracelet that I bought on Day 2 of the trip at the Mountain Fling show. I love it, a perfect fit, it clips to form a firm bangle style. You can read the post about the arts and crafts show here.
We stayed at a very nice Comfort Inn that was only one mile up the mountain from Main Street in Blue Ridge. We could see the mountain tops from the hotel.
I am not a fan of those folks who ride down the road with their feet up on the dashboard, or a bare dawg hanging out the window, ha! But, I had to get one more set of pictures of my new shoes to amuse myself as travelling Blue Ridge, Georgia was quickly becoming a memory and we were about to enter the reality of Atlanta traffic.
I bought these shoes after dinner on Day 1 of our trip. The shop is named “Humble Pie” and has lots of interesting Bohemian style things. All of their shoes at the back of the store were on sale for 50% off. I could not resist, so I got these funky wedges. This colorful pair will go with so many things throughout different seasons. I like the detailed design around the edge of the soles.
Travelling Blue Ridge, Georgia – After Dinner Story
Ya’ll, I have to share my “after dinner story” with you from the night before we left Blue Ridge — I will describe this in colloquial humor so it is not T.M.I. …..
We were just leaving downtown Blue Ridge after a wonderful dinner and some last minute shopping. As soon as we got into the car I thought, “hmmm, is Montezuma calling?” I wasn’t sure because it was more like a text at that point and not a full-out call (if you aren’t familiar with what I’m talking about, Google ‘Montezuma’s Revenge’). Well, thank heavens that the hotel was only one mile away because as soon as we parked my thought became, “Good Lord, it’s the Charge of the Light Brigade!” I jumped out of the car and explained briefly to Big T that we needed to hurry to the elevator, pronto. Why is it in times like this that the elevator seems to be slow hoisted by hand?! We finally made it up to our floor and I told Big T to run ahead and throw that door wide open while I was speed walking right behind him — yes, our room was all the way at the end of the hall then a right-hand turn! I made it into the bathroom, whammed the door shut and began a tedious struggle with the long 18-inch nylon zipper down the back of my jumpsuit. Ladies, you know what I’m talking about. You cannot get in a hurry with a wiggly nylon zipper. It is like a Chinese finger trap, the more panicked you are with it, the tighter it clamps down and will not move! It finally zipped down and all panic subsided, for the moment. I did have to send Big T to the store for medicine before the stores closed to save me from having another terrifying episode. Have you seen the movie “Bridesmaids”, LOL. Except it is not that funny in real life, only as a story after the fact, ha!
Goodbye, Blue Ridge, see you in the Fall! It was hard to leave, but it was time to get back home. We are already talking about our next weekend getaway. As for Blue Ridge in the Fall, we need to make reservations now since it is a popular Fall destination.
