Rocky Mount, NC

Our blog is as much for us to remember where we have been as it is for family and friends to keep up with us.  This post is one of those and it is for our friends that are not on Facebook.20160418_173125My Aunt Stevie Houghtlin and her husband Bob live in Nashville, NC.  It is a very close to Rocky Mount.  My first cousin Claire White Greer and her husband George live in Rocky Mount.20160417_125340This is Bob and George after lunch.  George is the priest at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church.  Has been for the last 11 years. Cliff and I decided to camp in Chocowinity, NC because of the proximity to Rocky Mount. We went to Rocky Mount on Sunday, April 16, 2016. We went to church with the family.  This also included Claire and George’s daughter, Sarah Katherine, her husband Brandon and their new baby, Anna Claire.20160417_125333After church, we went to lunch at The Prime Smokehouse.  Cliff said this is the best brisket he has ever had.  I had the pulled pork sandwich.  It was excellent with the sweet potato chips.  If you are ever in Rocky Mount, NC, please go to this restaurant, you will not be disappointed.

Beautiful on the inside too.20160417_132128Claire, George, me and Aunt Stevie.  Why we decided to take pictures in the driveway, I am not sure.20160417_132145We hung out here for a little while and I got to hold Anna Claire. Why I did not get a picture of her and her parents, I am still not sure.20160417_163545Off to Nashville, NC to Aunt Stevie and Bob’s cottage for two.  So sweet and cheerful.20160417_16353020160417_153333A lot of good memories.  Claire and I went to Camp Greystone together in 1973 and 1974. It is located in Tuxedo, NC.  I went to their website, it sure does look different than it did when I went there.  Claire met her husband there, even though the families had been friends for years.  I loved my visit and could have spent several more hours with her.20160417_153240Aunt Stevie’s home is so bright and cheerful.  We just loved our visit and can’t wait to see them again soon.
