North Carolina Nod

We have traveled North Carolina's pottery highway in the Seagrove area and we have shopped!  In fact, we're totally shopped out and now resting in a comfortable Burlington motel.  When we first arrived a few days ago, we began our sojourn at the North Carolina Pottery Center.  The center includes a delightful museum and also provides a showcase of pottery examples from the local area.  With over 90 pottery artists in this region, this stop helped us formulate an organized plan for our visit! 

We saw some exceptional work in a few short days and met some very personable artisans.  And we purchased some treasures, of course!  I'll show you what we got after we get back home.  Right now, everything is packed up and nestled away in my little red Outback.

We went to the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro and were disappointed in the lack of animals, closed facilities (because of the off-season), and arduous design. But we have been cheered by the pleasant hospitality of North Carolina residents. It's nice to visit a place where folks are so polite!

We saw a dusting of snow in the mountains when we traveled between Tennessee and North Carolina.  But today we experienced a beautiful wet snowfall as we arrived in Burlington.  It's not sticking to the roads, so we will have no worries when head on out to Colonial Williamsburg tomorrow morning.


  1. Snow that far south? Goodness... All our snow melted today in the very mild temps. Guess we'll get some more overnight, but that's expected way up here. Have a happy overnight and a pleasant journey tomorrow.

  2. Isn't it nice to meet polite folks! As far as I can remember, I haven't visited N. Carolina seeing as how most of my travelling was when I was a youngster. I'm glad you're having a pleasant trip! :)

  3. Glad to hear you are having a good time so far. I've never been to North Carolina but then there's a lot of places I've never been. I don't get out

  4. We can be pretty darn good folks here and I thank you! Yes, we had some beautiful snow here yesterday. I enjoyed watching it and now it can go. LOL

    Drive safely and I look forward to seeing your purchases!

  5. We've been there but just passing through...Can't wait to see the photos.
    Sad about the Zoo visit! I know you like the zoos!
    Happy traveling! BE CAREFUL and make SURE Marty has his seat belt on!!Lolol

  6. Sounds like a lovely beginning! I can't wait to read about and see pictures of the middle and the end! And still waiting patiently for photos of Grey Havens decked out for Christmas ...


Marty, here! Donna loves comments, and I faithfully pass them on to her. Thank you so much for visiting!
