Friday was an absolutely beautiful day to drive—clear blue skies as far as the eye could see.
Bunny and I checked out of the hotel at 11:00 AM and started the drive to
WNC Farmers Market
to pick up some fresh produce before driving home.
The WNC Farmers Market is right off I-26 so it wasn't like we were going that far out of our way.
Only the traffic to the WNC Farmers Market was slow.
it took us much longer to get there than expected,
and then we had to muck about with finding an ATM because some of the farmers at the WNC Farmers Market don't accept plastic.
So there was some time lost there.
Soon after that,
we started the drive home.
The first 19 miles took us well over an hour to drive.
For some reason we never were keen to,
half of I-26 Eastbound was blocked off between Asheville and
It was a portent of things to come.
Our fantastic time of 11½ hours to Brevard was countered by our worst time of
13½ hours from Brevard. Traffic along I-26 was horrendous as much as the weather was wonderful.
But we made it back and now we recuperate from our vacation.
