Sorry to keep everyone waiting on updates! My great Parisian adventure has been exhausting so far. On Sunday, B and I explored the city. (Which meant she oohed and aahed over the architecture and bored everyone with her random facts.) We pretty much crashed at the hotel. Jet lag is no fun! 

Monday kicked off with a visit to Notre Dame Cathedral! Here I am just hanging with my new gargoyle friend. There was an elly gargoyle too(!) but he was too far away to pose with. We climbed too many stairs to the top, but it was worth or for

Don’t mind me. Just on my way to PARIS, FRANCE! 

It’s been too long since this pachyderm was roaming free!

Until the next roadtrip, everyone!

Finishing up our time in Asheville by stopping at a local beer/wine store. B’s been desperate to stock up on local hard ciders and was quite successful. Asheville has 10 local breweries if you can believe that! 

We’re set on adult beverages at least until Halloween!

This is slowly turning into a “Molly Poses By Food” blog of sorts. But I can’t really help it, all my days consist of now are driving back home and stopping to eat. I’m loving Asheville for the little time we’ve been here. We stopped at the local bookstore, Malaprops, which had tons of good stuff, although B encountered some less than classy fellow customers. Dinner at Mamacita’s, an artsy Mexican place with paper lanterns, ceviche, and coconut rice. Yum! 

B has always loved Asheville (hey Biltmore!) and wishes we could stay to explore some more of the artsy, cool city. Oh well. Onward to bed and home tomorrow!!

Well, B and I managed to make amends. Although it was touch and go for a little bit. Here I am at our previously mentioned breakfast. We spent our last morning in Staunton at Cranberry’s Grocery. B and I split a veggie quiche that we agreed was the fluffiest, most delicious we’d ever had. Cranberry’s was kind of a small town version of a Whole Foods. Definitely a must stop in Staunton!

Driving to Asheville to continue our trek back home!

—B overheard at breakfast.

I’ve never been so insulted in my entire existence. And to think, I came on this trip as a favor to her!

Here’s another one from dinner! I met a charming woodland fellow by the name of Gottlieb. He offered to light our way to a good time, but I unfortunately had to decline. It would have been rude to ditch the traveling companion, and I’m sure he says the same to every passing roamer. 

Night all! Busy day of driving back towards home tomorrow.

Let’s play I Spy a Molly again, shall we? We headed off to everyone’s favorite German restaurant Edelweiss right outside of Staunton tonight. B has been here quite a few times growing up and was super excited to take me along. 

I was more than happy to roam the table eating and sampling whatever I could get. We had sauerbrauten, red cabbage, sauerkraut, potato salad, potato dumplings, green beans, spaetzle, black forest cake…such good foods for an elly belly!

B had a surprise waiting for her at Monticello - a behind the scenes tour of the upstairs and dome room! Here I am in one of the giant windows of the dome room! The upstairs has only recently been opened and we could hardly believe our luck. 

I tried to distract B so I could make my escape and become a plantation mistress, but she isn’t quite as gullible as she looks. Anyway, quite an adventure. Headed back to the hotel for a nap now!
