“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.” – Henry David Thoreau
We all have that spot where we love to be. This is a place where all of your problems are just fading into the background. This is somewhere that when you go, the only thing you think about is the moment. You don’t think about what is waiting for you back home, or any of the problems that are still unsolved. All you are thinking about is this beautiful place you are standing in. One of those places for me is Curtis Creek. It is located near Old Fort, North Carolina. The road runs right beside it, and you can hear the creek while you are driving down the road. What we like to do is just roll our windows down, drive slowly up the hill, cut the radio off, and just listen to the sounds of nature.
The last time we visited Curtis Creek was in the Fall of 2020. This was the first time we had left town all year because of the pandemic. We all knew that we needed one day to get away from Charlotte, so we headed up to the mountains for a day trip to check things out there.
What is your happy place?
