C & C Farm Trail Ride in Louisburg NC

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.


































Beautiful farm.  We rode through fields and wooded trails.  It was lovely. 
If you like to ride I suggest you drive out to C&C Farms.  You will love it. 
See the link to their website at the top of the page so you can get more info and call for reservations.
Get out and try something new.
I suggest you go on a trail ride!

By the way...while on their site I found Erica and I with our guides.

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…

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:-)
Happy Travels Everyone! KathieyV:-)

Childress Vineyards in Lexington NC

There are a ton of wineries in NC.  Childress is one that Cindy and I had the opportunity to visit last Nov.  It is beautiful.

We signed up for the winery tour.  One of the first things they asked was "is there anyone here who has not heard the Childress name?"  I think Cindy and I were the only ones to raised a reluctant hand.  The inaudible gasps were deafening.  We soon learned he is a NASCAR guy and NASCAR is huge in NC.  Here is a quote from their site....

"By opening the doors to Childress Vineyards in 2004, NASCAR team owner Richard Childress fulfilled a longtime dream that grew from the days when he first began racing in California and visited wineries with friends. What began as camaraderie and good times soon became an engaging passion for world-class wines and then the vision to build a world-class winery."

We visited right before Christmas.  I loved the entry door.
Let the tour begin....
