More about Abingdon
Saturday morning we were up very early! We met M and her boyfriend at the Farmers' Market, where the biscuits and sausage were the recommended starting place. I got a pork tenderloin on a biscuit, yummy. And down the line further selected an Ethopian blend coffee. We ate at a picnic table in the shade and I watched two young ladies at a nearby booth crocheting. We then shopped the rest of the market, and I contemplated a beautiful necklace of silver and a blue gemstone. Lovely, lovely, but finally decided it was a little rich for my taste. We bought fresh cinnamon buns and enjoyed them before we left for more walking tour of the town. Sat. was the annual Plumb Alley Days, where the community has booths or handcrafted items, flea market, overstock from local stores, yard sales, etc. We each bought a few small things and walked many blocks in the sun before Mom & Dad bought some lemondade and found a nice bench in the shade, and M and I continued shopping & buying! The local bagpipe band marched the length of the alley and played. When M & I decided we had finally seen all there was to be seen, we had a walk back to the bench, and then a long walk back to the car. M went to work, and we took another driving tour, what else was there to be seen in Abingdon? Well, we found out that most everything to see was right in the downtown area. But we found a fast food place for lunch, and then returned to town and Stage II where we saw Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks. This was an excellent production! After we were back at the motel relaxing Mom said she could have seen it a second time that evening! After the theatre we all agreed that Alison's was the place to go for dinner. This time I got the baked potato soup and a sandwich.
Then M had to go to work again, and we went back to the motel to relax. We had a great chance to visit, and lots to see and do. Special thanks to daughter for hosting a tour of Abingdon and for the theatre tickets. And thanks to parents for the motel room and all the great food. I had a fabulous trip!
