Memorial Day Weekend - Brevard, North Carolina

While Gabe and I were both raised in Daytona Beach, FL, only one of us was born there (moi). Gabe was born in North Carolina and lived there until he was 5 years old. We had a very quick trip to the base of the blue ridge mountains. Brevard North Carolina. We made the trip up for his Grandma's 75th birthday, which turned into a family reunion. It was great spending time with Gabes familiy I already know and love while meeting many new faces!
Brevard is known as the land of the waterfalls and Triple Falls, was used as a filming location for The Hunger Games.
We saw many fly fishermen on our trip. The water was 50-60 degrees - more power to them! Gabe's cousin and his daughter even went down the famous sliding rock. Can you imagine sliding down this thing? Not this girl....
We visited Looking Glass Falls twice and got a lot of great family photos. It was a stunning location to visit and I even climbed rocks wearing a maxi dress and flip flops....not smart and I do not suggest it (states the bruise on my bum).
We are already planning our next trip to Brevard - 2 days was not near enough time. We had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend and it was wonderful spending time with Gabe's family!
