Vacation - Day 1 (Saturday)
Today was the first day of vacation. We flew into Charlotte via AA with a pilot who not only made up for the delay we'd experienced at the airport at DFW but also made one of the smoothest landings I've ever experienced! We picked up our luggage, our car and made our way to Saluda (just outside of Asheville). We're staying at Saluda Mountain Lake Retreat (http://www.ashevillecabinrental.com/) in a cabin called the Bear Chalet - a very rustic cabin w/a terrific view, plenty of room and a hot tub. We spent our first day relaxing and finding a grocery store and have already taken lots of pictures.
