Tuesday we left the resort to drive around. We tried to find something to do on the south side of Lake Lure, but after following Highway 9 for a while with no success, we turned north and followed Highway 108 back to Rutherfordton. The main street had a number of antique shops we visited. Finally we ended up at the children’s museum, which the girls really enjoyed. Their favorite part was the room set up as a grocery store. The spent a long time “buying” food and checking out at the cash register. When it was time for lunch we went to the Pizza Hut in Forest City — about a 10-minute drive.
When we got back to the Condo, I took the girls outside for a short walk, and we found the deer again at the end of our parking lot. We followed them to the edge of the hill where they stopped and looked at us for a few minutes before bounding off.
