Ashley's father was getting married in the mountains of North Carolina and I got invited! Ashley, her daughter (Kaleigh), and I made a weekend out of the event. IT was really nice to get out of town for the weekend and we had some fun things to do and good food to eat.
Day one was mainly driving three hours in the heat. We stopped in Franklyn North Carolina for a late lunch. It was a place called Hungry Bear and they were said to be the most veg friendly place in town. They had some solid options for vegans too, sadly, there bread was not vegan. I had a large white bean salad, Ashley had a bun-less burger and a side salad.
Shortly after lunch, we were at our lodge. It was a really nice place will a full kitchen and I was able to cook a meal on one of the days. That evening, we walked the 500 feet to the creek and looked around. Dinner was at a Mexican place that was not very vegan friendly.
