Sparta was also fun. Just big enough to have some places to hang out and a few restaurants, but still "local". There are several gift/art shops in town and a coffee shop (with WIFI, woo hoo!). I am beginning to make it a favorite destination. Expect to see me back. Also, the drive approaches being perfect. It is only 2.5 hours and is very scenic, goes by Greensboro, has a stop off at Pilot Mountain State Park for Scenic views and a stop off at the town of Pilot Mountain for more diversions and an excellent restaurant.
So thank you Joy for a wonderful birthday and excellent companionship!
