On the Road Again!
We had a wonderful drive on Monday and made it south of Spartanburg, SC. We left home around 5:00 am, stopped in Charlottesville for breakfast and had lunch in the Barbecue capital of the world, Lexington, NC. The barbecue was wonderful! and the place we ate in had been written up in Southern Living magazine. There were loads of people there--mostly locals--so we assumed we had picked the right place. We then stopped outside Charlotte, NC, at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens. This place has been recognized by HGTV as one of the 20 best gardens in the U.S. As you can imagine, Joann thought she had died and gone to heaven. It was beautiul and the pictures were taken there. We stopped around 5:00 pm for the evening, so we had a long day, but made good time. The weather is almost perfect, so we are keeping our fingers crossed and prayers going for continued good weather.
