A Luxury Resort

We took a lovely drive through the Blue Ridge Mountains to spend the day at Primland.




I wore a leather trimmed black jacket by Helmut Lang via Saks Off 5th. Similar here. The silver tank is by Erin London via the Marble Lion at the Inn at Biltmore. The pants are Traveler's from Chico's. The black suede pumps and the Ivanka Trump reptile clutch are from Saks Off 5th.




The French Kande necklace was a gift from Mr. Mickey.




We have been planning to visit this resort for a long while so we decided to drive up to have a late lunch and take a tour.




The views from every angle include mountain ranges which seem to go on forever.




We saw no bears today but wouldn't that be a thrill to have to wait for one or two to cross the road?





The approach to the Lodge.








The two-story wine "cellar" is located in the main lobby.

I am looking forward to spending some time in the observatory. Since the location is so remote there is no light pollution from towns, allowing for an unobstructed view of the night sky.







The views from the library are awe inspiring! 



















We enjoyed our visit immensely!





Leaving the resort, we saw this majestic fellow grazing beside the road. He didn't seem to mind that we stopped to take his photo.




















Wild turkeys foraging for food and one of the many stone bridges along the Blue Ridge Parkway.






A wall of ice at twilight along the Blue Ridge Parkway.





The perfect ending to a perfect day!





Thank you for joining us on this wonderful journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!

Lovely scenery! That ice wall is very impressive, and the stag you spotted quite a handsome fellow. That's a fabulous jacket and French Kande necklace. Happy New Year to you and Mr. Mickey!
