|Morning at Beaver Lake|
|Blue Ridge Mts (from the Grove Park Inn)|
|Downtown Asheville (from Grove Park Inn)|
|4th of July at the Grove Park Inn|
We needed the rain that's fallen over the last few days, and an additional set of thunderstorms today helps even more. A morning walk at Beaver Lake was luminous, and thankfully free of rain. And in spite of the afternoon downpours, it cleared off in the evening, ready for fireworks.
The evening sky was so lovely, we went up to the Grove Park Inn to see the view.
Woody was admired by all (he gets a pass, apparently, being a lovely fellow, even though he's WAY beyond the size normally accommodated; we just have to keep clear of food serving areas....) He fulfilled his role (to make people happy!)
