What Can You Do in the Highlands of North Carolina?

Hi Neighbors!

Have any of you ever visited the Highlands of North Carolina?  I haven't, but I have lived in North Carolina before, and I have got to say the fall leaves in the mountains were simply gorgeous.  We lived there 20 years ago.  Wow!  I would LOVE to visit the mountains again.  The weather is really nice too.  You get to experience all four seasons.  My favorites of course are fall and spring, but I don't mind a mild winter.

I was checking out the area of the Highlands of North Carolina and they seem to have things to do year round.  Have you ever checked out Highlands NC homes for sale on the internet?  If you lived in this area there would be so much to do!  I would enjoy living in this area.  There are many attractions and others that are only a day trip away.

I know the children would want to visit the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad.  You get to go on an excursion through the mountains.  Just seeing the views would be great, but they also have special themed trains too, like the Polar Express.  This is one of those day trips we would take.

There is also golf (not one on my interests), tennis (my daughter likes playing), and of course there is fishing, hiking, canoeing and horseback riding.  I have at least 4 children who would LOVE to go horseback riding.  The whole family enjoys canoeing and hiking.  I have a feeling this would be a place where my family would find too much to do!  Choices and decisions!

Watching the leaves in the fall would be another favorite activity of mine.  I so enjoy the cooler weather and the beautiful colors.  We actually went out yesterday and took some pictures and included some fall leaves!

If you could move anywhere, where would you choose?  I actually have a few places, but the mountains of North Carolina would be one of them.  Or maybe there is an area you would like to go for a long vacation.  Share with us here At the Fence!

See you later neighbors!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
