Cloudy day at Montreat in black and white

A cloudy, rainy Sunday seemed like a good time to drive over to Montreat and walk around the pond, taking in the rhodo-filled valley’s cool, damp vibe.  On the way, nestled between I40 and Hwy 70, is the abandoned Working Hands Gallery shop. Someone added the ship’s figurehead to the side:
