Happy Hump Day! Last week, I visited Albemarle, NC, a small city with big attitude nestled on the banks of the Pee Dee River. Albemarle truly has it all, folks: charming residents, a rejuvenated downtown, and the Uwharrie National Forest right in its backyard. After getting the inside scoop with residents, business owners, and even a city councilman, I treated myself to a LEGENDARY steak from Yadkin Valley Steakhouse. Yet another trip I won't soon forget!

Christmas parade's grand marshals share common bond - The Stanly News & Press

Absolutely love this! Albemarle Christmas Parade will have some special Grand Marshals! Most baseball fans are familiar with the concept of “bullpen by committee,” in which the duties of one relief pitcher are shared among a number of teammates.

Absolutely gorgeous! #VisitStanly #ItsJustPrettierHere

Another capture of a recent amazing sunrise over Badin Lake! This was just after the colors started to appear just over the trees in the distance across the lake. Hope everyone has a blessed day!

The Native American POW WOW was awesome! Here are a few pictures from this past weekend!

#VisitStanly #PowWow #NativeAmericans

When I first heard that the Native American PowWow was coming back to Badin, NC, I was super excited! What a special event that's held on grounds where Native Americans from many different tribes once gathered hundreds of years ago. If you haven't been to one, you should definitely check it out next year when they come back. Thank you all who made this event possible!

Legend has it that before Dr. Francis Kron died, he put all his money and gold into an old wooden keg and buried it, putting a curse on it and an army of ghouls to protect it!
