Celebrity Dairy Open Barn Event

I have been to Celebrity Dairy three times for their open barn events.  So much fun.  The location is beautiful and the baby goats adorable.  They are open this weekend but sadly I will not be able to attend.  That won't stop me from going back and looking at my old blog posts and remembering the joy of my prior visits.  I will stop by their website and see what is happening.  Join me....
A quote from their site in regard to an open barn event...
"We'll have lots of kids by then, and chances are pretty good that more than one birth will occur during our Open Barn. No matter what the weather, the action occurs in the barn, and under a roof. Come dressed for the weather. If you're hungry, we'll have food and beverages available in the Inn."

I just had a wonderful time exploring Celebrity Dairy via my blog.
It is not only a farm but an Inn.  You can stay the night and enjoy a country breakfast and spend time with the goats.  Sounds heavenly to me.  I may have to go spend a night or two.
Happy Travels Everyone!


  1. how cute is this experience!! i love your awesome shots :-)

    1. It is a fun place. I love to see the little goats. If you live near by you should check it out:-)

  2. So cute. Your photos are terrific. When my niece was much younger, her parents were having problems weaning her off the bottle. So, my mom and I took her to a goat farm and she fed a baby goat with a bottle. The next time she wanted a bottle- we said the goat got it. She cried and said ""mean old goat," but after a while- she was fine. She's a mother now of two little ones.

    1. What a great story. I will share it with my daughter who has a 7 month old:-)

Winkler Bakery in Old Salem NC

WINKLER BAKERY521 SOUTH MAIN STREETConstructed 1800, restored 1968
One place Gale and I knew we had to visit was the bakery in Old Salem.  I have enjoyed the Moravian cookies over the years but everyone has told me I had to try the sugar cake.
Look at all the temptations....Yummy:-)

A bit of history....

The sugar cake was amazing.  We took it back to our room and enjoyed the yummy sweetness in front of the beautiful fireplace in our room.  We also shared a bottle of local wine.  What a lovely day:-)

A Visti to Rye Bar and Southern Kitchen in Raleigh NC

It has been a while since I have visited a new restaurant.  I did a google search and came up with Rye Bar and Southern Kitchen in Raleigh NC.  Sounded wonderful so I called Cindy and off we went on a restaurant adventure.  Here is a quote from their website.... "A refined take on traditional Southern cuisine. That's the essence of Rye Bar & Southern Kitchen, our onsite restaurant in the heart of Raleigh's vibrant downtown. Executive Chef Michael Rigot's seasonal menus feature the freshest, healthiest produce and meats, all from local North Carolina farms. A main dining room, private dining room, and outdoor patio provide an abundance of seating options. Craft beers, uncommon cocktails, and premium wines head the liquid refreshment line-up."
The restaurant itself is located in downtown Raleigh in Raleigh Marriott City Center. The Bar was lovely.  The night we were there it was packed.  Lively place to be. They brought this lovely platter to our table, they call i…

A Visit to Beautiful Lake Lure in North Carolina

I have lived in North Carolina since the early 90's.  I had heard of Lake Lure but have not taken the time to visit until now.  I don't know why I waited so long.  It is beautiful. I will share some of my photos and some tidbits I found online...

A bit of history....
In 1925, the Morse family created Carolina Mountain Power Company and funded the construction of a dam on the Broad River (through a mortgage) which produced the lake after which the town is named. The full impoundment of Lake Lure was completed in 1927.

I decided the best way to see the lake was to venture out onto the lake.  You can take a pontoon boat ride with Lake Lure Tours, and that is just what I decide to do.  It takes about an hour, and you have a cruise on the lake and learn a bit about the Lake Lure and its history.
There are houses of all shapes and sizes on the lake. Lovely views from the pontoon boat... The Lake Lure area has been used several times as a filming location, beginning with Thu…
