Well here I am loking into another weekend and I still haven't shared last weekends pictures and travels. This was one of those Sundays' that had no real plan the old man(hubby)said, "ya'll goin' with me?" We gladly said, "yeah." When he's ready to go he's ready; so I had neither knowledge of where we were going and I didn't grab the camera so all pictures are thanks to baby girl's(Alisha's) camera. I think you'll enjoy seeing them.
The destination was MT. Airy, North Carolina, which for us isn't a long drive. It takes us about twenty minutes from Stuart, Virginia. We go there often but people travel to Mt. Airy from very far away in search of Mayberry. Yes, Mt. Airy is the home town of Andy Griffith and the inspiration for all those wonderful Mayberry shows.
We only came to visit Main Street where there is alway, always, interest and excitement.
Pickin's in the Common's
Our first stop it the commons area because we all have to hit the restroom.( you know how us girls are) Well I honesetly would have been content to set there and listen to the bluegrass all evening. Mt. Airy is full of wonderful musicians but bluegrass is truely king around here. This the kind of wonderfulness I think you only get with bluegrass music. These guys are not a peticular band they just come walking up start pulling out guitars, mandolins, and banjo's and start picking. The picker's are growing because people keep walking up with instruments in hand. Several ladies can't help but do a little flat footing(dancing). Oh, but my crew is ready to walk about.
Definately motorcycle friendly!
Mt Airy loves the motorcyclist
and they love Mt. Airy.
Do you remember the Blue Bird Diner from Mayberry?
No shortage of hot rods.
If ya' got it..bring it!!
and more shops!
You say,"you lookin' for artisianship,"

anything you want
Did I remind you your in the South?
Well that's a quick look at Mt. Airy. I hope you saw something that either entised you or interested you. By the time we'd walked both sides of the street we we're hungry so we ended the day with a fish supper at the Libby Hill restaurant. I recommend them for good affordable family dining.
Thanks so much for visiting Mayberry with us,
and as always...
A few links for ya...
