Grifton, North Carolina

IMG_0532On our voyage south we knew there was one stop we couldn’t miss.  Grifton, North Carolina is a small town full of history and centrally located, but most importantly that is where Sams and Windy live.  When I read other traveler’s blogs about the people they are able to spend time with I know just how they feel.  This journey isn’t about a destination, it is about being where we should be.  Where God can help us see why we are on this earth.  Talking about traveling with Sams and Windy and spending time with them means so much. Caroline, Windy and I enjoyed sharing our love of crafting.  We all learned something new.  Sams taught Marcus about loading shells.   They shared their amazing craft room with us for an afternoon.

Caroline loved giving their dogs lots of attention.

We went shopping for items for shoe boxes to be donated to less fortunate children.  Marcus and Caroline each chose items to purchase for a child their age from a list made by Samaritans Purse.  Then they put their boxes together to be blessed the next day at church.  We want to thanks Sams and Windy for letting us share in this project of giving and for the yummy tacos they bought us for lunch (a first for Marcus and Cali.)

We attended church with them.  Marcus and Caroline sat with Sams and Windy during the service at this welcoming church.  It was so nice to worship in such a warm and friendly place.  After church we headed to The Catechna Indian Village and Grifton Historical Museum to learn about the history of the area.  A knowledgeable volunteer told us all about the Tuscarora Indians who lived along the creek.

The museum is filled with displays about the history of this area.  I learned so much about how tabacco was grown and harvested by women who had done it, including Windy as a child.

While we were in the area we visited Wilbur’s http://www.wilbersbarbecue.com/ for lunch.  It was absolutely delicious.  We were also able to meet the builder and property manager of the apartments we own.  It was so nice to meet this business savvy couple and their employees in person.
