After a bagel.
After a quick stop at the rest area because Flopsy needed a bathroom break.
After a detour to see a big pencil.
I left Virginia and rolled my way into North Carolina.
I headed out to Mt. Airy AKA Mayberry.
A town devoted to Andy Griffith.
And I met up with Sadie! Sadie is a HungrySister and is awesome and saw that I kind of had not much to do for a bit and offered to let me come stay with her a day earlier than planned!
In “Mayberry” there was a statue.
And a gas station.
And some other stuff.
And a jail.
And a museum we couldn’t take photos in.
We honestly never watched the Andy Griffith show all that much so we weren’t too familiar with anything else!
We were a bit hungry so we went to a fast food place called Cook-Out, which was definitely delicious!
I had a burger topped with homemade chili & slaw, mustard, and onions and a strawberry cheesecake milkshake. And we split some onion rings. It was delicious.
Sadie had to head off to work for a bit so she drove me to the bottom of Pilot Mountain State Park and said “drive that way.”
And so I did.
And at the top it was beautiful.
I hiked around a bit and then met back with Sadie in Winston-Salem for a chill night of TV and Taco Bell preparing for the day ahead…
