24 May 2018 – Awards Banquet
Sun: so long for this time round Damascus and hopefully there will be a next time round in 2019! Appreciations to the town of Damascus and the organizers for hosting another successful Trail Days.
Random pix from this trip.
Pleasant drive back to SC stopping@Tryon NC, pop app 1,700. Had an omelette@TJ’sCafe, only place opened when we got there. Again had to doggie-bag leftovers.
Located in the escarpment of the BlueRidge Mountains, the area is a center for outdoor pursuits, equestrian activity and fine arts.
Irmo High School Track&Field 2018 Awards Banquet – well done to #1 for Varsity, Academic, State Qualifier Awards, to #2 for Varsity, State Qualifier Awards and good job to all the coaches.
Edited: 30May – now I understand why the neighbours here call them The Blond Family – for real, Was asked where I lived during the tour of the neighbours’ gardens and when I told them where, the remark was: Oh! The Blond Family. Somehow I do not think of it this way when I am here! But they do have a point!!
Mon: laundry and a day to chill with much needed zzz. Looking forward to doing a support ME-hike in Jul when more charming places like Tryon, NC will be in some of the paths to cross and to eat lobsters for a week.
Tue: cleaning out bag&box left in the attic here. Delighted to find these AT stickers collected over time and this lovely 3Dpix by Braid – sticker at the bottom left was placed there by me for this pix.
Did not buy any stickers this time round and looks like there is more than enough here.
Such a good idea with this mini farmers’market@IrmoHigh. Tue is the day when there is a teachers’ meeting until 1700hrs and perfect timing to pick up some ready-made dinner@the food-truck and dessert@the baked-goods.
#1 request from me was the Kettle-corn and lemonade here was made to my taste, tart with minimum sugar.
Wed: Happy Birthday dear niece Yasmine. A morning to chop up left-overs for fried-rice. The onions, squash & broccoli from yesterday’s farmers’ market will enhance both taste and presentation! Baked good were excellent, especially the Red-Velvet shot, just right on the cream-cheese and moist cake.
A perfect way to end a peaceful day with this beautiful sunset by the lake. Was careful walking in the middle of the road to&from the lake as there has been a couple of snake-sightings the past week.
Dusk is just an illusion because the sun is either above the horizon or below it. And that means that day and night are linked in a way that few things are there cannot be one without the other yet they cannot exist at the same time. How would it feel I remember wondering to be always together yet forever apart? ― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
