A Trip to Tarboro

Left Virginia for a weekend wedding in Tarboro, North Carolina. Just had to share this photo for Barn Charm  and Our World which I saw on the way.
Be sure you click on the Barn Charm link above to see other barns from around the countryside and Our World to visit other sites.


It was a sweet wedding. The groom (my great-nephew) is a college baseball coach. His Mom did a fabulous job decorating for the after-rehearsal dinner. The bride and groom each had a play roster with their attendants listed. There was baseball decorated cookies and the grooms cake was topped with an edible baseball. Cute huh?

Daughter Shirley and me at the wedding reception.

Morning after the wedding some of the family members met at McDonalds to have breakfast and say goodbye.

I had never been to Tarboro and found it enjoyable, very historic. The town was established in 1760. Been around quite awhile.


  1. That little barn has definitely seen better days. She deserved to have her picture taken!

    The wedding sounds like fun. Very nice picture of you and your daughter. Nothing like getting together at McDonalds!

  7. The barn may be wobbling but looks like a decent crop in the field beside it? So glad you got to help celebrate at a family wedding. Looks like there was plenty time to visit with relatives and still help the couple get on their way to married life.
