We have discovered that people in this little mountain town are friendly and eager to meet folks. You see most all of them are on vacation too. Tom and I met this nice lady on another of our morning walks.
Linda is here all the way from Charlotte, North Carolina. It is not unusual to meet someone from Texas, Oklahoma or even Kansas....but North Carolina is way over on the east coast. Linda and her husband come for a month every summer and rent the very same little (red) cabin. We have a lot of these little tourist cabins in town...mostly built just after WW II. Linda told us that she has been coming here since 1949! Yes, she came as a child with her parents.It is amazing what you find out when you stop to say hello.
