Sunday Getaway

I have been hard at work on Etsy shop business the past couple of weeks with a custom order, a few standard orders, and a wholesale order.  So, it was a welcome break on Sunday when the Man of the House and I took a few hours to head over to the Biltmore Estate for a hike.

It was a perfect Spring day.  Clear blue skies.  Temperatures in the low 70s.  A bit of a breeze.  We couldn't have asked for better weather for our walk!



We parked down by the lagoon and followed the Deer Park Trail over to the Bass Pond.  This is a very hilly trail, taking you through large meadows and provides views of the estate and the home which most visitors never see.





After pausing at the Bass Pond to enjoy the view, we walked up through the gardens - where the azaleas and tulips were putting on their best colors.






Then it was back down through the deer park to the lagoon where we finished off our beautiful hike with a stroll and a relaxing picnic by the French Broad River.







And we even got to see some baby geese.  How cute is that?
