North Carolina Road Trip Itinerary

Virginia/North Carolina Road Trip: Day 7

Sadie had to work this morning but when she was done she raced back home to start our day’s adventure! She got a nice slice of a day in the life of Silly America, and I got a nice slice of NC BBQ (quite literally!)

Out first stop was Korner’s Folly, a house that contains 22 rooms spread out over 7 levels on 3 floors…

To make that happen this included some floors that were cut in half so that they were only slightly taller than us. And there were some pretty slim doors and stairways too!

After our tour of the house we went to get some Lexington BBQ…I had a chopped BBQ sandwich and some hush puppies and fries…

We took a little time off from touring to pick up some supplies for tomorrow’s bluegrass festival at the Wal-Mart.

Then we headed to the downtown Winston-Salem area for a little street fest with performers.
