The first evening with our friends is a visit to their home, touring their renovation-in-progress, a picnic/concert at the top of Toxaway Mountain, and a stop to see their boat, which will be cruising on tomorrow. The weather is perfect for being outdoors and enjoying the mountain and forest views.
The picnic is a food fest – everyone brought a dish and much of it was home-cooking. It reminded Steve of the church potluck dinners of his youth, with significantly different (and arguably better) music and libations. The music is provided by a solo guitar singer. Perfect way to spend a fall evening.
Their boat is called “Intoxawayted,” named by their high school grandchildren. Very creative and funny. Tomorrow our day will start with a ride on Lake Toxaway in this cute, electric Duffy.
