Babymoon to Blue Ridge Mountains, Georgia


We had family in town last week, so we decided that we would go on a get-away for one night, just the two of us. Yes, we were bad. They flew in Wednesday night, and Thursday morning by 10am, we were out the door. We headed up to the Blue Ridge Mountains, just one and a half hours from home.

We decided on a bed and breakfast that was fabulous. It only had 4 rooms that were beautiful. It was very secluded and quiet. The owners were super nice and wanted to make sure we had everything we needed. There was even a bottomless cookie jar. And, gasp, they had free wireless internet and I didn’t even bring the computer. I did go through some withdrawals.

The room we stayed in was amazing; king sized bed, eating area, and jacuzzi. Not tot mention the wonderful mountain view from our room. Let’s just say we had a great time.

The very comfortable bed. Thursday night we went out to a restaurant on the lake. We both ate way too much (hey we forget what it’s like to not have to rush through dinner). We came back and laid down for a bit, and both passed out!! And, we wanted to go look at the stars, but we didn’t make it.

Dining for two?
The jacuzzi tub. This was soooo relaxing. The air jets blowing, and some bubble bath….very nice.

Friday morning (Happy 4th of July), we woke up super early because we went to bed so early. We decided to walk around the house and take some pictures of their beautiful gardens before breakfast. Of course, I have no idea what these flowers are, but they sure are pretty. And, I’m super impressed with my camera’s abilities so far!

Obviously, not flowers, but a unique design.

A bee just happened to start flying around while I was trying to capture this flower. Just a little bit faster shutter, and I’m sure the bee would have looked like he was floating.

A finch.

After one of the most delicious breakfasts I’ve ever had…patriotic french toast, with blue berries and strawberries, we headed back into downtown Blue Ridge for a little shopping.

The train was at the station, so we snapped some pictures. Unfortunately, there wasn’t anybody around to
take our picture, so you get one of each of us!
Man, do I look pregnant now? Somebody actually asked me (for the first time) when I was due. This would have been 25 weeks and 1 day.

There was a scenic overlook on the way home, so we stopped. However, we were quite disappointed because I had to stand on the bumper of the car to see anything. But, these are the mountains…the Appalachian Mountains to be exact.We had a great time, and promised ourselves that we would make another trip up there (who knows how far into the future that will be, but we did it)!!!

    What a lovely vacation Krystyn. Of all the shots, the coneflower is my favorite. The focus is dead on and the bokeh is beautiful!

    Although Matt looking p*ssy is equally as award winning! 🙂

  17. We love the Blue Ridge Mountains… Grew up close to there, and had a lakefront condo on Blue Ridge Lake, where we used to ski, swim and enjoy the views. Really a peaceful and wonderful place.

    We also love Whitestone Inn, in Paint Rock, TN. A little over an hour from Chattanooga, near Athens, TN.
    They have wonderful rooms, with heated indoor jacuzzi, spa showers (the ones with waterfalls, a bunch of jets, etc. that flow water at 80gpm)… beautiful views of Watts Bar Lake and the mountains…

    Thanks for sharing the pics – made me homesick!
