Lake Lure

Last Friday was such a beautiful day here in NC. On my way to the mountains, I decided to take a little detour off the highway and visit Lake Lure. It's such a cute little area with a "beach", beautiful views and cute little shops and restaurants. I love visiting there for a little picnic or walk around the lake. I think the last time I was up there was with my mom for our birthdays. We went horseback riding, shopping and had a great dinner at a local restaurant.

Friday was super hot and there was a crowd of people on the "beach". As I walked by I could hear children laughing and splashing in the water and smell the suntan lotion and picnic lunches. I thought it was a beautiful day to take some pictures so I'd like to share them with you today!! Have y'all ever been to Lake Lure??

  1. What a beautiful place - and it has a spa, too! It's exactly the sort of place I love to go to to relax.

  2. Yes, I've been. It's beautiful there! Did you know that's where Dirty Dancing was filmed. Great location, yet so random. :) I still don't know how they found it.
