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:-)

C & C Farm Trail Ride in Louisburg NC

Image
This time last year Erica gave me a wonderful Mother's Day/Birthday Gift.  She knows I love horses and so she purchased a 2 hour private ride at C & C Farm in Louisburg NC.  Here is what they say on their site..."C&C Farm offers a relaxed, family oriented environment for equine enthusiasts.  We offer riding lessons, trail rides and pasture boarding on our 65 beautiful acres."
 Beautiful horses....
 Erica getting ready for the ride...  Our guides.  They were great.  Very nice people.  We were in good hands...  I like this quote from the site...
"Most of our horses have been raised on the farm since they were born so we have a very close relationship with all of them and their unique personalities"
Alive, well, and smiling after a wonderful ride:-)




You will never meet a kinder lady then the one in the photo below.  There is no doubt that she loves her horses and all the critters on their farm.  It was a joy to meet her.
