We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.

We are now in North Carolina. We have taken a break from the beautiful Blue Ridge Pkwy and are enjoying Nascar and the BBQ Capitol of the world, Lexington. We have taken a tour of Charlotte (Lowe's) Motor Speedway and lots of race shops. It is amazing how pristine the shops where they work on the cars are! We toured Mrs Hane's moravian Cookie Factory and bought lots! Had BBQ at the best in Lexington for my birthday. here BBQ is pork shoulder (that's it) and the sauce is a vinegar based liquid. Very different.. But good. Mothers Day was spent listening to good music, drinking good wine, eating good cheese in a vineyard (doesn't get much better than that!)
