Down East Doll Show Trip - day 11

Show is over - sad to leave new acquaintances so soon. Started with breakfast but we left before the baby shower/gift exchange and awards from the contest were given out as we wanted to get on our way home.

Baby shower gifts

Linda showed me a doll she had sold to a doll museum in Switzerland that had been dressed in clothes she had bought from me!

So we were off. We drove towards Tennessee

but made our first stop in Pittsboro NC where Bill worked some years ago when they put in a new 3M plant. Turns out they are closed Sundays so we had to look from afar. The town square and then the plant some miles out of town at a quarry.

On towards Asheville NC - stopped in Ashboro NC for lunch at very highly recommended David's Restaurant -

from its looks and clientele (mostly older folks coming from church services at noon on Sunday and it was packed by the time we left)

about like a Denny's but there the comparison ends. The menu selection was extensive, imaginative and all fresh foods - even the peaches in my crab stuffed avocado plate.
