The cabin we stayed in was beautiful! We were at the top of a mountain road, and while it was a little scary driving up there (I always felt the car was going to fall backwards), it was well worth the view. We had a pool table on the ground floor; a living area, kitchen, bathroom, & porch on the 2nd floor; and two bedrooms and a bathroom on the top floor. Josh & I enjoyed sitting on the porch and even playing a couple games of pool (I was awful). Thomas also enjoyed the pool table (see pictures below).
We stayed at the cabin most of the time, because we just wanted to relax and not spend a bunch of money. On Saturday evening, we ate at the Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant and had some of their wonderful apple fritters! Josh was very sweet to me and happily went shopping with me at the Tanger Outlet Mall.
Sunday morning we left around 11am, not realizing that everyone else was leaving at that time too. Once we got through traffic and ate lunch at Cracker Barrel, we were ready to go home. However, now that we were headed toward the interstate and driving around 55mph, we realized we couldn't drive home with the fender hanging loose, because it was dragging the ground. We stopped at a gas station to buy duct tape (we were trying anything we could), but as Josh came back to the car, a guy that we had seen earlier and had been very judgmental about, came over to help us. He told Josh that duct tape wouldn't hold it and we needed rope or wire. Thankfully, he had some rope and he fixed the car up for us. After he helped us for free, Josh and I felt very convicted about our thoughts toward him. He had tattoos all over him, and was wearing very baggy pants that showed half his underwear. More than likely, this guy wasn't a Christian, but instead of sinfully judging him, we were convicted of how we need to pray for him.
We are very thankful for the time to get away, but are glad to be home again. Here are some pictures of our trip.
