Deserving of a post all of its own. Wilmington is a beautiful little city. It was 90 degrees the day we were there. We could not have asked for a better day. I think the pictures say it all. If you ever get the chance, go there. It is well worth the trip.
In anticipation of this upcoming weekend (temperatures in the high 60s, near 70 :), I made a fruit salad using what I had at hand. No food reminds me more of spring/summer than this. And, it is sooo good for you.
Have you seen the recent studies on strawberries? Click here to watch a segment that was featured on ABC News with Diane Sawyer. Strawberries not only taste good, but aregood for you too!!!
Dave and I have lived on this property for 25 years. During that period of time, we have taken down on an A-frame, pulled out refrigerators, dismantled several outhouses, and tore off a portion of our house (which was about ready to fall off anyway). There is one item on this property that I will never let him take down.
This is it...
I think they made moonshine here. How cool is that? Why do I think they made moonshine here? Let's look in the window and search for evidence that would support my theory...
Pressure gauges, smoke stacks, piping, jars...
No loot though.
Doesn't matter. It's going to have to fall to the ground. When it does, we will pick up the evidence, display it proudly in our barn, show it to our friends and as we sit around a bonfire, I will tell them the story of how it made its way to us. Then, we'll drink to red neck ways.
