The Haw in Swepsonville, NC

 Since we get time to ourselves while A is in day care we find other things to do to keep busy. 
 For instance I have finished binding 2 quilts, made a quilt top and have almost finished the hand work on my Quite Contrary quilt top.  
I've also finished reading 5 books. 
 This day we went to Swepsonville and found a park on the Haw river. 
 Beautiful day to go for a walk along the river.

My Batman showing off his Bat Cave shirt.

I found a few interesting plants.  
This Clematis for instance. 
 It was going to seed but still pretty.

I had Moonflowers in my yard and this blossom looked like the plant was in the same family.
Chris looked it up and it is a Datura stromonium. 
 I wish we could have seen it in blossom!

These next 2 photos reminded me of faces on the log. 
 Kind of creepy for Halloween, right?

We went to the Saxapawhaw general store and THIS time I made Chris get some "quilty" beer.
I don't really drink beer anymore but I loved this can!  
We saw them the last time we were here and I didn't buy any.
  I picked up a 6 pack this time!

We did go to the brewery there and Chris enjoyed a beer.

Next up is Avery's first birthday.  

I hope you are enjoying our trip to NC so far!
