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!

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body respon
