Weekend Update - Highlands, NC

On our way up to Asheville, we took the scenic route and stopped in the Highlands. During the drive, G and I were a little disappointed that the leaves hadn't peaked in color yet, but when we got to the Highlands, we were very happy. The colors were so vibrant. Of course, we didn't actually stop to take pictures, so you'll just have to use your imagination. I do have some shots of the main drag of the Highlands. Very quaint. We stopped in to Buck's Coffee Cafe for some hot cider and tea. I was not prepared for the temperature drop. I know, I know, we were going up to the mountains, but it's kind of hard to wrap my brain around 50-60 degree weather, when it was 80 in Atlanta. So the tea and hot cider hit the spot.While on Main St, we stopped in Kilwin's Chocolate and Ice Cream Shop. Everything looked so good! Here are some shots of the truffles. I bought a few, but I only got to sample 2 of them since G at the rest! And he didn't even tell me until I said, oooh, I can't wait to try the other flavors! Damn him! Now looking at these pics, I am so craving them. ARGH! Oh well, I'll head over to The Chocolate Bar in Decatur at some point.
I just had to take a picture of these "Bubble Gum Buddies." Aren't they adorable? I don't think I could actually eat one!

They are bubble gums? No way.. have to be reserved for special occasions I'd say. They are super cute.

Oooo those Bubble Gum buddies are so cute! What a marvelous weekend.
Cath and I went to pick some pumpkins up in Woodstock - and the farm was a farce! They just plopped some shipped pumpkins on a field- harumph. On to Kroger...
Love G's blog! I just ate dinner, but I'm hungry again.

Songy, they definitely have to be saved for a special occasion.

AsianCajuns, that sucks about the pumpkin farm!

Highlands is one of my favorite places in NC! I am so glad that you enjoyed your (brief) visit, and that you stopped into the candy store! I am jealous of the beautiful scenery!!
