Virginia and North Carolina Vacation: Day 6
Thursday, August 25, was Day 2 of SEVROC 2022.
We got up around 6:00 am. A group of eight of us ate another good breakfast at Pop’s Place.
After breakfast Bob and I went for a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We stopped at several overlooks.
Our first stop was at was Waterrock Knob Overlook. The Parkway’s highest visitor center is located here. The visitor center was closed at the time that we were there. Waterrock Knob Overlook is known for its beautiful long-range views of several major mountain chains in the Appalachians. Waterrock Knob is uniquely suited for viewing sunrises and sunsets.
Our next two stops were at the View Wesner Bald Overlook and Woodfin Cascades.
To see Woodfin Cascades, park at the overlook and cross to the other side of the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Our next four stops were at The Orchards Overlook, Rabb Knob Overlook, Richard Balsam Overlook and Casey Fork Overlook.
A lone flower caught my eye.
We left the Blue Ridge Parkway at NC 215. We drove North on NC 215. We stopped at two waterfalls.
I captured video of all three waterfalls.
We returned to A Holiday Motel around 12:30 pm.
I believe this is the most colorful label I have ever seen on a bottle of moonshine. Anyone who wanted to taste moonshine was welcome to a sip. I didn’t sip.
We ate dinner at Haywood Smokehouse in Waynesville. Bob ordered a brisket platter, and I ordered a pulled pork platter.
We filled the party tent. I think there were 35 of us. The food and service were excellent.

We’ve been to each of those overlooks and waterfalls. What a nice drive.
Those are gorgeous views and always very nice to see you and Bob, and your friends. Looks like a fun time.
Your pictures and the scenery are awesome. It is a unique place where one can see a sunrise or sunset. Beautiful country!
