The weather in the area was unpredictable in the last few days,it was difficult to make plans for the day .
The evening before there were thunderstorms and Weather Alerts all over the news,at the end we decided to go ahead as planed and make changes if necessary.
We left the A/C working in the trailer ,opened the drawers that hold dry food ,lowered the awning and hit the road.
First we drove to Meadows of Dan to visit the Beautiful Old General Store where we got some spicy jam (we love it),then continued to Mabry Mill a beautiful location that has been photographed and painted many times. Restored gristmill/sawmill/woodworking shop and blacksmith shop. Old time skills (basket weaving, seat caneing, spinning, and weaving) demonstrated.
We strolled the small restored village while the skies got darker and darker….hoped to make it before the flood starts (we barely made it to the truck before the rain).
Chateau Morrosette near Floyd VA was our next stop,we took the tasting tour ,for $8 you got to taste 10 different wines that came with a detailed explanation about each one,but before that we had to show our ID (I love this part) to prove that we are over 21…LOL..
Floyd is a nice small town on the Crooked Road VA,a General Store in down town offers ,cloths,souvenirs,food,ice cream and at the back on the stage –MUSIC-All in one…
So after Jazz in the winery we had a half an hour of Mountain Music while people wonder around the store shopping and eating..that was very interesting.
WE took beautiful back roads(some on the BRP) to get back to our C.G with closed windows,A/C and Tony Bennett singing the whole way.
What a day..Thank you for visiting.
