Fairfield Mountain Resort at Lake Lure, NC
Sunday June 16, 1991
Alarm goes off at 4:00. By 5:30 we are out the door, off to Burbank Airport. Our plane lifts off at 6:50 a.m. We change planes in Dallas 2-1/2 hours later. We land in Atlanta, GA at 3:30 their time. We got our power walk going from the gate to baggage, 20 minutes fast.
Picking up our rental car, we head out for Ashville, NC. It's a beautiful drive but further than we'd expected. It's 12:00 midnight when we finally arrive at Fairfield Mountain at Lake Lure. We drove through pouring rain for one hour and had dinner at McDonalds on the way.
Our condo is lovely as usual. All the Fairfields have been first class. Plenty of space for another couple. The living room is upstairs. Kitchen, jacuzzi room, bedroom and bath downstairs. Two TVs.
Fell into bed about 1:00--not sleepy. Only 10 p.m. L.A. time.
It may have been 10:00 Pacific time, but mom got up at 4:00 in the morning after only 5 hours sleep the night before. I can't believe she wasn't exhausted. What a long day they had! I am anxious to hear about the week they spent at Lake Lure, as we purchased a timeshare in Alexandria, VA a few years ago which is a Fairfield Resort, and we can use our week at any Fairfield Resort. I have never been to North Carolina except for a brief visit to Kitty Hawk on the coast.
