We enjoyed being tourists in Asheville. At the beginning of our walkabout, we paused for a photo with the iconic iron.
It was a marvelous day to be in the city, because there were not many people about. An herb and spice shop was the only one we spent much time in. The walls were lined with large glass jars full of fragrant powders. The owner said we were welcome to open any of them to smell. John and I sniffed a few, but grandsons David and Nathaniel really went to town.
We ended up in the Arcade, a large old building full of small shops. We had lunch there and could watch people stroll by and look at the merchandise displayed by vendors outside. It was a wonderful day of being together and enjoying each other.
