It's "Food Truck Friday Evening" at the local park in Mathews, NC...

Image
The food trucks assemble around the local park on Memorial Day Weekend Friday, the people come to mill about, meeting friends and neighbors and order their food at the various mobile kitchens. Sweet.

I found myself reflected in the cover glass of this wonderful Apple-themed sampler; a typical vision of Hubsy. He looks more like his own Father very day.

The Business End of Windy Hill Orchard...

Image
A newer, more stylish servicing area, manned by cheerful and smiling young people. It was fun; a great destination on a summer Saturday Southern afternoon. A shaded pavilion sheltered the cider samplers from sun and rain drops. The cider and other apple products were delicious.

We Sampled a "flight" of Hard Cider at Windy Hill Orchard in York, SC...

Image
Such a 19th Century household staple; to think I had never really tasted hard cider before.

North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer, NC was the attraction for the day.

Image
Rail buffs appreciated the appearance of the Norfolk & Western 611, a famous rebuild of a unique and rare steam locomotive, usually housed in Roanoke VA. The museum preserves many interesting buildings from the steam era, along with countless trains, autos and some aviation equipment. There are sometimes interesting photo ops at places like this.

Just as we have seen in the luscious photos in Southern Living Magazine

genuine Southern Charm seen in the pretty streets of Salisbury, NC. I like the top two homes the best; they seem older, more classic.

Cheerwine is a bright red, clear cherry flavored soda delicious over ice. Available mostly in the American South and once in a while at specialty stores elsewhere.

The Sweet Meadows Cafe in Salisbury, NC

Image
The photo is of a piece of wall art in this lovely, friendly and clean restaurant on the main business street in Salisbury. Menu, enticing; food, delicious; service, good, attentive and friendly. With a bar, no less. Welcome, after a long hot morning at a museum in a nearby town.
