Last night we met up with a couple of friends and ventured to downtown Charlotte and tried out BLT which was an absolutely stellar experience (and you all know how picky I am when it comes to restaurants!).
Today we "hoofed" off (yeah bad pun, sorry!) across to Harrisburg to visit other friends at their "ranch", I guess you could call it, and enjoyed some country hospitality. DH did a little hiking whilst I headed off with some four legged friends for a ride through the forrest, wading creeks and rivers and toning down the pace so that the horses did not falter in the heavy mud.
Surprisingly, there is no horse racing or polo hereabouts but, horse riding is very prevalent and since it's something that I enjoy a lot, I think a little exploration of the local amenities is in order! I could easily get used to some relaxing rides round the lake and through the woods.
