Where I last left off we were in the Sleepy Hollow Motel making s’mores via candle (ghetto, I know) in the town of Lake Gregory. The next morning we woke up at 8am (stupid time change!) and decided to get some delicious coffee from the Lake Gregory Coffee Company. We walked down the road from our hotel, snapping photos along the way.
You can see the Bear Claw has its “open” sign on… at 8:30 in the am?
I love the small town graphics.
I work in a field all about replicating reality. Seeing these real small town graphics and building is so fun for me and great research for future work. I kept an eye on the details.
After consuming our delicious caffeinated beverages, we headed back toward Lake Gregory and decided we should walk the loop of the lake. We found out later it was about 3.5 miles. It was a delightful way to spend a Sunday morning. It was a tad chilly, but walking in the sun felt nice and right along the water with beautiful lake views.
On the north side of the lake, we paused to look around and before we knew it tons of birds were headed toward us. It’s like they are trained to know when people are there to feed them. We had nothing for them, but it didn’t stop them from running a full speed towards us. It was a little frightening. So many were all black with white beaks. So unusual.
After we finished the loop we decided it was time to move on to Lake Arrowhead. We had dinner there the night before, but didn’t get a chance to see it in daylight and really explore. Up next: Lake Arrowhead and the conclusion of our mountain weekend!
