#BeetleRock view! I don’t recommend bending over to stretch and looking through your legs upside down. I felt like I was falling. Which would have been bad since that rock sheeting slopes downward quite a ways.  #SequoiaNationalPark (#travel #California #roadtrip) (at Sequoia National Park)

North Carolina - Hanging Out with the SOs Sister

Click Me for Mea’s Blog on TravelBlog.org

Day 1 - September 19, 2014
Drove from Orlando, FL to Charlotte, NC

—————

September 19, 2014 11:01pm on the road heading to Charlotte, NC

What girl is in North Carolina and is going to see waterfalls tomorrow? This girl. Currently we are driving from Charlotte to Hickory. Dani’s sister lives up here in Charlotte. We came to pay a visit to her and to visit the nature stuff too. Win win.

This entry will be short and introductory. This is a mini-trip. I just wanted to note that I slept about half of the total 8.5 hours from Orlando to here. It was great. I also want to note that Dani’s sister, Jen, is so cool. We ate dinner at Mac’s Speed Shop and had drinks at Tin City in Epicentre.

Meeting up with family is always a kind of catch-up on life session. Lots of this and that and talking about yours truly. I could always tell when they were talking about me. I gave them the knowing look and Dani told me they were talking about how much I’m worth. I said, “At least a tank full of chocolate milk.” Priorities. I has them.

The fun part is the saying goodbye. People like to hug for some reason. Sometimes I question this custom. It requires me to awkwardly get intimate with someone. I never initiate the hugs. I let people take them from me as they choose. Jen was not shy. That girl hugged me and started kissing my cheek. O.O My eyes got big and I said, “She’s kissing my cheek!” In my head I’m thinking, “Get her off!” It made me think of an eager puppy. Ha ha. She was like, “I’m sorry. That must have been torture for you.”

"No you’re not."

"Yeah, I’m really not."

*sigh* These hugging people need to be watched. You can’t trust them. :)

Dani’s dinner from Mac’s Speed Shop. She requested BBQ and got BBQ. Charlotte, NC

Mea’s dinner from Mac’s Speed Shop. Mea’s tummy was all like, I don’t want BBQ. I totally asked the waitress what was on the kids menu and I got chicken tenders. I mean, I still used the sauces. I still kind of partook in the BBQ. Charlotte, NC

They got new cups! I gotta admit it’s kind of cool.  It’s a simple restaurant. My family has been coming here since I was little. (#Apopka #Florida #food) (at Robinson’s Restaurant of Apopka)

Painting at Paint Nite! This is my artwork. Not bad for a daytime accountant! Those watermelon margaritas worked wonders. I laughed so hard tonight. “Painting is fun! I like colors!” @ Bar Louie in Orlando, Florida
