Oh dear it's going to be so hot here in NC--but the mts should be better. Have a good trip. I love to look at clouds and you have captured them so beautifully on your camera!

Beautiful skies! Enjoy your time in NC. It's hotter than Hades here and the humidity is high. Then add the drought. UGH

We are still pretty cool in the Seattle area. We are promised a warmer day tomorrow. Lovely mosaics. Enjoy your trip...

It was actually a beautiful day here today -- in the 70's and breezy. Such lovely skies you have captured. Have fun in NC! xoxo

After our freezing cold winters we bask in the heat because we know it won't be long before we are wearing mitts and boots again. V

Oh, I'm sure it's much, much cooler here in Vermont ;) A beautiful day it was in the 70's.

Enjoy your trip!!

I hope you have a great trip and a really good cool-down!
Up here on Vancouver Island it's sunny but cool and breezy - no real summer weather yet, but I have high hopes!

It was quite pleasant here in Philly ... love Florida in the winter, not so much in the summer. Best favorite month there is October. Safe travels and enjoy the hills!

Cat & Cricket said...

You're scaring me!! I am moving to Florida in a bit... and like Missing Moments... I am 5 minutes from Philly... but also have a place sown the shore!
Head to the hills!
It is beautiful... I have tons of family in Cashiers, Highlands...and my parents used to have a place in Franklin, NC.... great finds too!
Have a great week!

gorgeous photo!!

Ms. Bake-it said...

Love the cloud mosaic! the heat has not gotten to me yet but come mid August, I will be wishing I could head for the hills! August and September are the only months when I am not too enamored of my beloved state! Luckily, I am planning a two week trip to Maine in mid August so I will have a short reprieve from the sweltering heat.

Have a safe trip! Looking forward to your NC posts.
