Greg and Michelle treated us to a weekend in this fun hippie town and a stay in a mountain retreat-a perfect trip! This was a Christmas present from them. The spring weather was perfect. We enjoyed a trip to the NC Arboretum, where the sounds, sights and smell of birds and flowers were lovely. After that we went to the NC Farmers Market- where the smell of fresh ramps was refreshing too! In Asheville, there were musicians on every sidewalk, plenty of independent shops and great food. At the house, we enjoyed watching old Netflix detective movies together.
