The Blue Ridge Parkway

When the sky is so blue it seems there will never be another cloud, we love to go for a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Driving on the Parkway also means we will be close to Blowing Rock and the Tanger Outlet which Mr. Mickey is always happy to stop at so that I can check out the Chico's and Coach stores. The food court is mid way between the two stores. I bought the handbag at the Coach outlet last year.

Fair is fair. We stop at Chico's for me and we stop at Kilwin's Ice Cream for Mr. Mickey.

The line was out the door and down the street!

At last we are close enough to read the flavor selections! Butter pecan is Mr. Mickey's most favorite. I usually go for something chocolate.

The park across the street is a great place to sit and watch people while you eat your ice cream.

The breathtaking mountain ranges can never be captured in a photo. You must go there and drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway for a few miles on a clear day so that you can drink in this awe inspiring view for yourself.

The navy light weight jacket is old. The white tank and pants are by Peck and Peck from Stein Mart. The shoes are by Kenneth Cole Reaction as are the sunglasses, both from T.J.Maxx. The necklace and cuff are old from Chico's.

Thank you for joining Mr. Mickey and me on this fun journey through midlife and beyond.

What a gorgeous drive, Susan! I am with Mr. butter pecan and I would add pecan praline to that! It must be good ice cream for the line to be that long! You looked lovely as always.
