Here's a quick finish to our beautiful day last week. According to the mini-goals for Take a Trip Tuesday, we had to follow the Burlington prime directive: always eat well. I also wanted to check out a local place (not a chain!) and eat somewhere with a wide variety on their menu to suit the tastes of everyone in our group. Pete's Family Restaurant fit my criteria perfectly. You know you have found a local hot spot when it is packed at lunch time and everybody turns around and looks when you walk in: they could tell we weren't from town. We ate well.
Before disclosing our final stop on Take a Trip Tuesday, I must mention one of the pitfalls of following your nose adventures: unplanned bumps in the road. Thankfully, we did not encounter any car issues, but when we reached Korner's Folly, in Kernersville, NC, it was CLOSED. One cannot see Korner's Folly, a multi-level, architecturally eclectic mansion, on a Tuesday. Ever. Just Wednesday through Saturday. That is NOT clear on their website, because I checked. Of course.
However, the exterior grounds are quite lovely, of especial interest was the fancy brick outhouse (not pictured)!

A perfectly sunlit magnolia eased by disappointment. Until the next adventure!
