Yesterday Rich and I headed down the road to Fayetteville, NC to pick up some tools that Rich had purchased. I was surprised at the weather, it really turned foggy and cloudy. Everything is all stirred up with hurricane Sandy.
The drive was down the back roads past pumpkin patches and fields of cotton ready to be harvested. I was hoping to get some pics but that didn't happen.
One reason that I chose to ride along was this place...
This is a restaurant called Sherefe. It has middle eastern food, which you know that I love.
So Rich and I had a lovely lunch. Since this restaurant move downtown we walked around for a little while.
Fayetteville is a very old town and you see it in buildings like this one from 1790.
This is in the center of town. It was the original sight of the courthouse which burned an then this was constructed. It is the old market where slave auctions where held. Other Southern cities have structures like this. It is similar to Charleston's.
This pic is for Shirlee. The Polish pottery is so beautiful. I resisted buying any. I give pottery as gifts frequently but it is local since we live in an area famous for it.
After that it was time to head home. The GPS took us up through Sanford, NC so I got to stop and see my friend Susan at work. She took us on a little tour of the new building.
In this golf cart!!! Fun!
I managed a little stitching.
I have a few more branches. I hope to get a little further today.
I hope that everyone has a great Saturday!!
