Serene Sparta Sunday

 Sparta is such a quaint mountain town.  We strolled around with the mountains in the back ground.  Kinda surprised to find only a few of cafes/restaurants only open Wednesday thru Saturday.  Of course summer tourist season is over. 

They are all probably resting up for Fall Foliage seasons when the streets with be flooded with cars full of leaf peepers. 

Then winter skiing.  The A on the water tower is for Appalachian.
Riding up the mountain from our friend's home we noticed many of the Overlooks didn't have the views they normally have.  Our friends told us the Park Service was very short staff not enough workers to keep the trees trimmed.  It was still a beautiful view and a gorgeous day.

    A common problem with viewpoints globally... that darned nature insists on growing and crowding it out!!! I do like a quiet town... YAM xx

  2. Here in the UK many cafés and other services have limited their opening hours due to staff shortages, and this is often attributed to Brexit reducing the available pool of labour. No such explanation in NC!
    Gail would like to visit 'Books 'n Friends.

  3. What a cute town and that book store looks very inviting!

  4. NOTHING, absolutely Nothing is the same as it was before 2020 and will take decades to recover. Not in my lifetime for sure. Sparta looks like a nice small town, maybe Hallmark could make a movie there.

  5. That looks like a nice place to visit, and you had a beautiful blue-sky day for it, too.

  6. Glad you had such a relaxing getaway!!!

    Hugs, Pam

  7. That does look like a fun place for a visit!

    Wishing you good health, laughter and love in your days ~

  9. I think it looks like a nice little town to live, Home prices are good and it is pretty. I just don't want to be another community that is totally affected by a tourist season. Just try and find toilet paper!

  10. What an interesting town! I LOVE small towns! Each has such a distinctive personality!
