We took it pretty easy coming up to North Carolina – left at around noon and got here at 3:40, after stopping for lunch on the way. When we got to the business office of Sun Dog Places, Caleb, the manager, had us follow him to the pavilion on Bear Creek Lake.
He showed us how the yurt was set up and showed us around the pavilion, which is this huge outdoor living room with a fireplace on one end and a dining area on the other end. On the buffet is a satellite television, and there is a fully stocked kitchen and two big bathrooms with all of the amenities.
Our yurt is the smaller one, and it has everything you would need – but you have to walk up a path to go to the bathroom. We took the dog down to the lake, where there is a small peninsula out from our place – the water was clear and the place is crawling with ANTS! I don’t know what the deal is – I have never seen so many ants in one place!
After we got settled in, we went in to Sylva, about a 3o minute drives, to get groceries. We decided to eat out tonight and cook for the rest of the time or eat sandwiches. We went to this little place called Guadalupe’s – it had high end fusion food with home made cheeses, etc. I ordered the goat burger, which was great. My husband had a little more difficult time because everything seemed to have gluten in it – the goat burgers had oatmeal. Talk about putting the “oat” in goat!
Time for bed. There’s A/C in the yurt, but I don’t think we will need that at night. More later!
