OK, now I’ve got that Willie Nelson song singing in your head, and it’ll probably be there for the rest of the day, overstaying its welcome!
Later on this week, we’re hitting the road again for another journey! Yes, we just got back from one not too long ago. But time’s a wasting! For several years, we have wanted to take this particular trip and something always popped up and nixed our plans. No more! It’s time to pack the bags, format the digital photo cards, and load up the little red Outback with petrol. We’re going to skedaddle eastward for our last trip of 2010!
First stop is a little town called Seagrove in North Carolina. It’s located south of Greensboro and known as the self-proclaimed pottery capital of the world. We love folk art of all kinds, and handmade pottery is one of our favorites! We’ll be visiting just in time for their Christmas open house weekend at many artist studios.
Our next stop will be Colonial Williamsburg to see it decked out for Christmas. This destination is famous for their natural greenery decorations. We thoroughly enjoyed our spring 2009 visit here, and can’t wait to see the buildings in their holiday splendor.
Our final destination will be historical Mount Vernon, home of President George Washington. There are special activities available and the mansion will be fully decorated for Christmas. We visited there about a dozen years ago and look forward to our return.
All of these activities should get us firmly in the Christmas spirit! We’ll be taking our laptop with us, so I hope to load up a post or two while we are meandering through the North Carolina and Virginia.
And please let me know if Marty starts to misbehave! Santa will want a full report!
