Weekend Adventures

How was your Memorial Day Weekend?

Ours was full of crazy adventures. We took a drive on the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway on Friday night to the Town of Floyd. Floyd is an awesome little town with a cool, local music scene and some really funky art and shops. It's known as a music hot spot on Friday nights and you'll always find a crowd at the Floyd Country Store for the Friday night jamboree.

On Saturday afternoon, I spent the day fishing with my granddad, brother and his girlfriend. We caught about 15 fish and fried them up for dinner and I learned that I have no patience for dealing with the bones in fresh fish. Unfortunately, we didn't cook the massive bass my granddad reeled in.

We were back on the road again Sunday with a trip north to Lewisburg and White Sulphur Springs in West Virginia. Lewisburg is a quaint little town that doesn't have much activity on Sundays and White Sulphur Springs was mostly abandoned. However, it is home to The Greenbrier, where we toured around and had some afternoon tea.

And we capped off the weekend by spending Memorial Day picking strawberries at a nearby farm. We now have enough berries to eat strawberry shortcake for the next three months but it's great to be able to pick your own fruit and eat it right after you picked it.
