Back in Beautiful North Carolina!

The day began in Beckley Virginia - this motel did not have scones for breakfast. {sad} We survived and when we checked out they had cookies! No place has cookies in the morning but this Country Inn and Suites did! And not just any cookies, they had chocolate chip and Ray's favorite macadamia nut. I didn't indulge but Ray soon forgot all about scones!

The day went well with a stop in Wytheville, VA at Sew What Fabrics & Batiks Etcetera. The people there are so nice and I just happened to find fabric that I wanted needed!

This is such a pretty place!

We headed on to Mount Airy, NC. That is the place on which Andy Griffith based Mayberry. 

It is a cool place and they have one store where we both love to shop. After a little shopping and a nice walk on the main street of the historical area, we had lunch at Barney's Cafe. 

We left Beckley about 9:20 this morning for a less than 4 hour trip. After 5 hours, we were about halfway! The last part of the trip was all in very heavy traffic - there sure are a lot of people that live around here and many of them think they are race car drivers! Anyway, we made it fine.

With our room, we have free breakfasts in the restaurant and free appetizers in the bar.  We went downstairs to check on the appetizers and both ended up with Carolina BBQ sliders with slaw. Although we didn't intend to eat dinner here, it became dinner! Really good!

OK, time to relax and welcome 2014! Happy New Year!


  1. Wish my husband was a shopper. :) blessings, marlene

  2. Did you keep Ray locked up for very long? Lol Glad you are enjoying your trip. Happy New Year to you and yours!

  3. Too bad you didn't a scone ... but a cookie will certainly go a long ways to making up for it. I can't wait to see what you bought at your stop.

  4. Sounds like a lovely time! You two sure do have fun together. Hope you have a wonderful 2014.

  5. Oh, I'd love to see Mayberry! We are big fans.
