Here’s Tuesday’s post, a day late.
At the Hotel Floyd in the small town of Floyd, Virginia, the work of individual local artisans is showcased in every room as well as in the public areas. This exquisite quilt is on display in the hotel lobby.
Our first stop on Tuesday morning was at Maybry Mill, where we met the owner of this old Ford pickup truck and learned how he came to own it.
The landscape of the Blue Ridge Parkway changes shape the further south you go with rolling hills, grazing horses and cattle, granite outcrops and rhododendrons. And the view from Elk Mountain Outlook speaks for itself.
Today was Election Day.
In Boone, North Carolina, rocking chairs really do sit on front porches and canine passengers check out the strangers in town.
Then it was on to Asheville to catch up on some laundry and prepare for the next leg of the trip.
