Isn't this beautiful? It is a college here in Belmont, NC called Belmont Abbey. I drive by it every day on my way home from work. There is an historic cemetery there too which would be interesting to walk through. This is a beautiful area, rather small town-ish, but look back to the left. About 10 miles down the highway is Charlotte. It's great to have the convenience and fun of a larger city near where we live, and yet enjoy a small town life. How we landed here is only luck, and we certainly feel lucky.
