Today we drove to Charlotte, North Carolina to visit our friends Phil & Sylvia who live on a lake. We arrived at their house and dropped off our stuff because we wanted to get to Charlotte Motor Speedway to see the qualifying race. We purchased great tickets that were inside a suite, so we weren’t going to be sitting in the hot sun. We decided to go out of the suite to check out that view, and we couldn’t believe how loud the racecars were. It’s incredible how some people were sitting in the stands without their ears covered.
After the race, we drove back to our friend’s house, and we had a fun time talking and catching up with them.
The next morning Phil and Sylvia took us out on their boat to check out some other fabulous homes on the lake. Their home was located in a great spot. I have posted some pictures down below.

Today we visited the beautiful Biltmore Estate. Construction began in 1889 and was finished in 1895. Out of 250 rooms, we only had a chance to see about 50 of them. The rest of the house is closed to the public it costs a lot of money to air condition and heat the stone home, so they shut off certain parts of the massive home. The part of the house we did see was breathtaking every ceiling was coiffured, and every room had a massive fireplace. It’s a must-see while visiting Asheville.
