Mt Aire, NC

On the way home we stopped in Mt Aire, NC. The town the Andy Griffith show was based on. We ate at the dinner and the people were so friendly.

New Market, VA

We had left New York and were now headed home.

We decided to take route 9 off the interstate and see where it took us. We ended up in New Market, VA

The Roads were beautiful

We had to visit all the covered bridges we had time for. The date on this one says 1804. Most of these bridges didn't last throughout the civil war or had to be rebuilt. Most were burnt so the enemy couldn't use them to cross the rivers.

This cute little windmill was at the front of the campground we decided to stay at that night.

Family Reunion

This is our family reunion. It includes family from the Crandall's, Stanley's, and Courtney's.
The guys all decided to play football

This is my dad's mom at the head of the table. Gramma Crandall.

This house belonged to my Gramma and Grampa Courtney, Gramma Crandall's parents. There grandson, Ronny and his wife Reese now live in it. I think that's wonderful to keep a home in the family.

Uncle George and Jennette's Cabin

We went to visit Uncle George and Aunt Jennette at their cabin on the lake. The boys went fishing, paddled a canoe, went out in a paddle boat and went swimming.

It was a beautiful lake. Uncle George took Mom, Richard and I out on his boat.
It was the first time I had visited them since I was a teen. It was nice visiting adult relatives as an adult.
