A Weekend Getaway

Last week my girls finished school & we headed out of town.  We headed up the road to Edenton, NC to celebrate our niece's high school graduation & acceptance in UNC (go Heels!)  It was a wonderful weekend in a quaint & charming town.  I had never been to Edenton but I fell in love with all of it's small town charm.  Even the husband relaxed.  Her are a few pics from our getaway...

These were the gardens at the historic Cupola House, located downtown.  They were beautiful & gave the Mr. & I some great ideas for our own backyard.

After 4 hours in the car with the girlies we were all anxious to get out & explore.  We headed downtown for dinner.  The downtown area is located on the water & was so charming.  None of the shops were open so I didn't get to make the Mr. break a sweat (or the bank) but don't worry, we will be going back!  Anyway this is the magnificent view we were greeted with.  It was breathtaking.  There were gorgeous old oak trees draped in Spanish Moss (a Southern staple!) & old men sat on benches fishing.  It doesn't get any more charming than this

All in all, a wonderful start to our summer.  And I've already found a beautiful bed & breakfast that we'll stay at for our next visit.
