Onto the parkway

Blue Ridge Parkway, with 2 friends, in search of adventure, and maybe apples.

First we had a nice drive through Old Fort, then the outskirts of Marion, going up US 221, to Linnville Falls turnoff.  And left, opposite the turn is a sweet local restaurant, which I've shared about before.

The Rock House.

It is actually located at the junction of 3 counties, McDowell, Avery and Burke, with signs designating each one.

Sunday dinner is when everyone who knew everyone else came to dinner after church...though a lot of these people may not have been at church, by looking at their attire.  But they would go over to another table and talk to them, then leave their pocketbook sitting on the back of an empty chair where 3 tourists came to sit down after waiting only 10 minutes to get a table.

We had an interesting fare.  And I was very full when I left.

Just a few miles up the winding road is an entrance to the Parkway, and then we headed south again, stopping only for a brief look at the rolling blue mountains.

I'm so glad to have the company of such fun friends.

Next I'll show you the destination of our trip.


  1. Looks like a fun trip. So glad you did it!

    1. Thanks Martha! It really was an easy and fun day. We have low expectations, so that means every little discovery is celebrated
