along the blue ridge parkway

We stopped at this store that said dried goods on the side of it. It was perfectly charming from the outside. Inside however was a disappointment. It was like a yard sale inside. Cory did find a pair of sneakers and Kyle bought a wallet, but no dried goods here. A few torn quilts and some other old items, but nothing I couldn't live without.

We stopped at Mabry Mill, it was sprinkling on and off, but never so bad we needed to find shelter. Shelby tried to run to every child she saw. Being a puppy she still thinks everyone just loves her and wants to pet her. We watched the mill grind grain, listened to some bluegrass, watched the blacksmith and some weavers.
The outbuilding are a beautiful, they make lovely pictures, reminding us of olden times.

This one with the reflection was nice, Cory took it.

Here is the store to return to. We bought fried apple pies that were just mouth watering. We ate them time as we stepped outside. They were so good, we went back and bought more for later.
Every time we head north we pass this Shot Tower and always say we should stop one time. So this time we did. The view from the top was not what we expected, but it was a nice stop.

This house sits next to the shot tower I just had to have a picture of it.
