C/C Trip #4 Back to Charlotte


As is our usual routine, we headed back to Charlotte
to visit with Aunt Marilyn a couple more days.
Not many pictures from here on out, but here are a few.....
selfies.  
I don't do a lot of selfies unless
they are with someone else.
But the mood struck me so here are a couple,
while we were driving along in the car.

Once we go to Aunt Marilyn's we started our routine
of cleaning her apartment.  She does a good job of keeping
up with it and has someone that does the floors for her, but
Dave does a little heavy duty cleaning when we visit.
Then we made our plans for the next couple days,
Walmart for groceries and a couple other things,
Kohl's and Barnes & Nobles.
She does love to do a little shopping.
Of course, we needed to get together with Monica again.
If you are ever in Charlotte, you should look up a restaurant
It has become a favorite of ours.
Their food is "southern comfort food."
I love the country fried steak.
Every entree comes with a deviled egg, 
they have the usual southern sides like
collard greens and grits as well as
mashed potatoes and other veggies.
And their soups?  To die for!
Here is a picture of Aunt Marilyn showing her new ring
that she got while we were shopping at Kohl's.
Our 2nd evening there we ate at a Mexican restaurant 
then went back to Aunt Marilyn's to have some homemade 
strawberry ice cream that Monica made for us.
We had a lovely time visiting and hope to be visiting again soon.
There is a lot to do in the Charlotte area,
but since she is will be 92 at the end of the month,
we don't get out to do much more than shop with Aunt Marilyn.
She is a doll though and years ago we used to visit some of
the other "sites" in the area.
Places like the Biltmore Estate and the
North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro.
There is also the amusement park, Carowinds.
If you are there around Christmas time a trip to
McAldenville, Christmas Town USA 
is something to see with it's 375 Christmas trees.
Bright and early on Sunday morning we were up and on our 
way back home.
We were greeted by this beautiful sunrise.
I'm not a morning person, by any stretch of the word,
well, not unless I've been up all night!  LOL!
I must say it was nice to see this beautiful sunrise though.
We made good time and were home for dinner with our son and
his girlfriend by about 6:00 p.m.

So there you go!
That's the end of our Charlotte/Charleston trip.
I hope you have enjoyed hearing a little bit about 
a couple of our favorite places to visit in the south.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.
