Bill Leslie's Carolina Conversations

Vacation Game

Posted June 15, 2007

Are you taking a vacation this summer? If so, where are you going and why? Have those high gasoline prices affected your vacation decisions. Let's discuss.

I’ll be on vacation next week so Carolina Conversations will take a brief breather.

Hey, just to have a little fun – how about another contest? You seem to like them.

Guess my vacation destination and win a free CD. Will I be staying close to home or heading off to a faraway place? Here's a hint. Elizabeth Gardner helped plan my getaway. I promise to bring back a slide show.

I’ll miss all of you! You've had some great comments this week on cell phones, sunrises and the simple pleasures of living in North Carolina.

    I'm guessing Colorado...we'll miss Carolina Conversations while you're away! We have a granddaughter's arrival to plan for by July 11th, so no big vacation plans here! Maybe a beach trip later in the summer!! Hope you have a great trip!

    My guess would be kayaking in whitewater somewhere. Whatever you do, be safe and have fun.

    Just a wild guess, (because of Elizabeth's input)....white water rafting on the New River or Gauley in W. Va...we did the trip in 2003 before our son left for the Navy...when you are on the river, your mind is only on making it over the rapids! What wonderful sleep (even in a tent) after a day of physical and mental exercise! Where ever your vacation takes you have a wonderful time and a safe journey.Peace be with you and yours.

    What a beautiful evening, and we did not have to leave Cary. We fired up the fire pit and sat on the patio enjoy strawberry daiquiris. I cannot remember the last time I saw so many fireflies in the natural area out back. Oh yes, I love the mountains, especially around the Blowing Rock area. But, this was so peaceful; a little bit of heaven right here in Cary.

    I heard Elizabeth talking about her trip to Colorado, so that's my guess!

  • carolinamissy Jun 15, 2007

    I will be going to Duck NC for a week in August and to the Rod Run in Tennesee one weekend in September. Can't wait for either of these, but I really am looking forward to the mountain trip, because I haven't been back there since I was 12.
