Part of the joy of traveling is finding things you never knew existed.
Traveling in North Carolina, right before we crossed over the border into South Carolina, we found a gorgeous man made lake called Lake Norman.
Based on what was around it I think a lot of well off people found it first. A lot of condos, golf courses, and fancy boats lined the lake.
Still, I would like to go back one day to check it out further. I don't know that the 3rd week of March would be the best time. Yesterday it probably was near 80 degrees but today it was raining and a cold front has now come through. Not exactly boating weather. Still, when we came through today the flowering trees were in bloom, and I saw a lot of people walking around enjoying the morning before the rains came.
Lake Norman will join my list of lakes I hope to return to one day. Another one is Lake Powell, a story for another day.....
