What a fabulous day.
We left Charlottesville early anticipating a big day and it successfully exceeded our expectations
We headed for June Curry’s “The Cookie lady” house in Afton.
But getting there through miles of horse farms, and private race tracks was exciting. And the riding was easy and weather cool. But the fun started when I stumbled up to “the Liars table” At Wyatt’s store in White Hall, Va. With the president of the club presiding – Elbert.
Seems this club has held daily meeting for the past 26 years.
Then leaving there we stopped at a ‘fruit stand’ in Greenwood. I had apple pie and coffee.
And then we started up the “hill” to Afton, Va. Got into the hostel that was ‘unlocked’ and left our name on the guest book. Took a ton of pictures and had a lunch in front. Search her name for a good read.
The Blue Ridge parkway was great today and good temp for climbing hills
Any way it will be an interesting evening at the Royal Oak Cabins in Love Va, ( minus the cabins because there is a wedding happening in the near future with sound system music and kids trying to sing. This was a weird place because the owner didn’t like us to buy all his food because he wouldn’t have any for others. He made us sandwiches the next day that were very scant and cheap. I would suggest no one stop at Royal Oaks in the future.
No cell service for anyone but we have wifi.
Check back later.
Dinner was hot dogs and hamburgers cooked on the fire. Of course, camping wouldn’t be camping if a thunder storm didn’t develop at least 15 minutes before dinner served, and showers started shortly after everyone had a plate in hand.
Only 45 miles, but one of those miles was straight up. At 9 MPH average, which I thought it was fair under the circumstances.
