A recent excursion on the Blue Ridge Parkway offered some enjoyable surprises in addition to the great scenery and time with Hubby.
Surprise #1 was a stay at the Pisgah Inn located on the “peak of the Parkway,” the 5,000-foot elevation of Mt. Pisgah. Husband Walter had told me that one of our overnight stops would be a surprise. But he gave me no clue until we were in the Inn’s office. Even then I was clueless. I thought we were just looking around after the impromptu dessert stop I chronicled here.
I didn’t catch on until the young woman behind the desk confirmed that Walter Skupien’s room was ready. His surprise was a huge success in the pleasing-wifey department. He posted about the Pisgah Inn experience here.
Surprise #2 was when we walked into the Inn’s crowded restaurant for dinner later that day and I heard “Linda, Linda.” I turned to find the source, and there was my cousin Lynn who lives close to the Mississippi town of my childhood. She and her husband were on a family trip with their daughter and granddaughter.

Our Pisgah experience was truly a “peak of the Parkway.”
