Sitting in the San Jose airport waiting to board our Southwest flight to Raleigh.
We had a good breakfast at San Jose Joe’s with plenty of coffee. Bought a sandwich to split for lunch at Brioche Dorée. We should be all set.
Other than the part about getting up in the middle of the night, I love taking an early flight, the airport is almost empty.
We had an almost nonstop flight to Raleigh as our only stop was in Denver and we didn’t leave the plane.
It was along day though so I’m really happy to be here.
We are staying at the Fuquay Mineral Springs Inn where we always stay when we come to visit family here. John Byrne came out to welcome us when we got here and even showed us the back way path to the Mason Jar! How great was that!
I was surprised at how beautiful the gardens are, even though it’s October.
I would say that “hurricane season” is probably not the choice time to visit North Carolina as it’s very warm and mostly raining. I’m certain the wind will be a factor soon as well. It’s still a beautiful state.
We walked from out B&B to the Mason Jar which is our favorite neighborhood pub to have good pub food and some good beer or wine. Tonight I was in the mood for wine but often I choose one of the beers on tap.
Chris had to strawberry spinach salad with chicken and I had the black bean burger with cheddar. Both were darned good.
Now we’re sitting in our room feeling very relaxed.
