11/4/14 Tuesday in Advance, NC (Forest Lake-TT)
Busy this morning trying to get my jobs done before we leave for Statesville to have lunch with our good friends Greg and Marcia from Wisconsin. We had such great times together around this time of year in a condo in Hilton Head last year. We miss them, even though we’ve seen them here and there on our separate travels.
Thus I got my light housekeeping done (floors), the blog posted and our end of the month bills reviewed.
Off to Statesville, getting there in good time to enjoy great food and lots of it for really nice prices at William’s Friendly Family Restaurant. Inside is a simple, not very fancy diner, but the Perch Marcia and I had was perfect, fried in cornmeal. The guys inhaled their hamburger steaks. We talked nonstop for over 3 hours. We’re all talking about changing our schedules to head south sooner. Not easy when many campgrounds are full of reservations for this time, but that warm weather is calling us.
When we got back home we set off on another great walk with Karen and Jeff. This is a pre travel day so after our walk John got some of those jobs accomplished then we had a leftover supper of Fiesta Beans.
Sure love that vote-by-mail process in place in Washington State. It’s perfect for us travelers.
Here are some goodbye photos from Forest Lake:
