Nantahala Outdoor Center

Nanthala, from the Cherokee language , means "Land of the Noonday Sun."
The Nanthala River runs through a narrow gorge and at certain
spots the sun reaches the ground at noon only.  Hence its name..
The river is very popular with kayakers and the Nantahala Oudoor
Center is a great place to visit.

Dining with a view....

Crislip Arcade

During a recent trip to St Petersburg I came upon this innovative collection
of studios and shops in a re-purposed urban building
that had been sitting idle.  Very nice light and airy central arcade...
