Carolina Cupid

     Since this is the week for lovers I thought I would ask you: What is your favorite romantic destination? There are no right or wrong answers.

     To the outdoorsy type the rough and rugged beauty of  Linville Gorge near my boyhood home might spell romance. To others a soft pillow with a chocolate truffle on top at a spiffy bed & breakfast says "I love you."

     I thought it might be fun to ask some of my co-workers here at WRAL to name their top romantic spot. Elizabeth Gardner quickly replied: "Hot Springs...Mountain Magnolia, a fabulous old Victorian bed and breakfast with beautiful views and fantastic food." Valonda Calloway says her favorite destination is Topsail Island for an enchanting sunrise or simply a warm day at the park.
Mark Roberts says romance with a jaunt to Asheville for spa treatments and big breakfasts at the Grove Park Inn.

     You have heard my favorites in the past. They include sunrise in Alleghany County, sunset at Bald Head Island, Edenton and Ocracoke. What about you? Please share.
