My wonderful bride enjoying a walk around the motel grounds and waterfront.
Even with the freezing temperatures there was still lovely plants to admire.
An area called the "Cotton Exchange" had many shops and restaurants to browse and enjoy.
Linda & I had a wonderful lunch at this German Cafe enjoying a Reuben sandwich and bratwurst with German potato salad and sauerkraut and German draft beer.
Later in the afternoon we enjoyed some ice cream at The Scoop
Saturday evening the boss took us to Paddy's Hollow for some of the best food I've had in a while. A great time was had by everyone.
Downstairs in the Cotton Exchange was an old wagon with a bale of cotton that may have been very old from the looks of it.
This was a picture on the wall near the wagon with the bale of cotton.
This was inside Paddy's Hollow with the boss's daughters on the left and my bride on the right, other employees in the center.
We left the motel and headed over to a shopping center and everything was closed on early sunday morning but we saw lots of cars at this place on the corner. Atlanta Bread, was an awesome experience. We had already ate breakfast at the motel but when we walked into this place we had to eat again. It was heavenly. They even have an item on the menu called "loaf of soup", serving soup in a bread bowl.
For Lunch we stopped at Mama Fu's restaurant and left very satisfied and full for the trip home.
A very welcome sight after being away is the water tower and the Halifax exit sign letting us know that we have only about 3 more miles to go before home. It was a good weekend but home is the best place to be.
