The jail is now in the back part of a building which currently houses a hair salon, so if you want to visit you must go through the lobby of the building. Still we were able to visit and the guys even enjoyed a short stint in one of the cells.
We drove the Blue Ridge Parkway all the way to Boone, NC, together with our friends Linda and Walter West. I had never been to Boone and thought it would be a fun ride. Well, as expected the drive on the BRP is gorgeous and since we packed a picnic lunch. We ate lunch upon our arrival in Boone atop the beautiful mountain view on Howards Knob County Park. My adventurous spirit was leading and to get to the park, we needed to master a very narrow, twisty road, which apparently no one was really excited to go on. When we finally got up there, all was good, we enjoyed our picnic and most importantly, we enjoyed the view.
We also visited Shelton Vineyards for a private patio picnic and wine tasting. Shelton Vineyards is in a beautiful setting in Dobson. Another small town 15 to 20 minutes away from where we are staying. When we arrived, we realized the vineyard was hosting a corvette show. There were corvettes in all colors and interiors. It was quite interesting.
We will be heading to the “inner banks” of North Carolina to a small town known as Chocowinity tomorrow.
