Autumn Excursion!!!

Our Beautiful Autumn Excursion…

 “Let us now reverently fear and worship the Lord our God, Who gives rain, both the autumn and the spring rain in its season, Who reserves and keeps for us the appointed weeks of the harvest.” Jeremiah 5:24a 

 We’re once again going to the Beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway to breathe in the crisp fall air and see the fabulous autumn foliage!!

 We will begin our day meeting at Mimi’s Restaurant parking lot (I-77 and Harris) at 9:45 a.m.; leaving Charlotte at 10 a.m. SHARP to head to the Blue Ridge Parkway. We will travel to the historical Mabry Mill. Plan on bringing a bag/cooler lunch and drinks for the day.  We will eat/picnic when we arrive. This is a very peaceful place, very low key. There is a working blacksmith shop, an actual water mill, and a small gift shop. Perfect for fall foliage pictures! We will relax at Mabry Mill until around 3:00 p.m. then head back for an early dinner.

 We will leave Mabry Mill and have dinner together at The Pirates Landing Restaurant located on I-77 and exit 85 in NC. It’s about an hour from the Parkway.

This will be a wonderful way to spend a beautiful fall day! Pray for good weather!!!

    Would it be okay for a Virginia local to meet up with you guys just for the Mabry Mill portion of your day? (I am from Virginia, so going all the way to Charlotte might be a bit of a trek... but I'd love to drop in while you're up here.)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
