Winston-Salem, North Carolina

On March 4, 2020 we spent another nice day relaxing in Wilmington, then we headed west on Thursday, March 5. We spent the night at Oasis of North Carolina RV Park in Marston, billed as the “Quietest Park in North America”. It is horse country and there are lots of nice farms.

We went on to visit Judy’s nephew Christopher and his wife Karina in Winston-Salem. We had a fun visit and ate very well! Dinner the first night was at Mozelle’s Fresh Southern Bistro with delicious local food.

On Saturday we ate lunch at JoLo Winery located north of Winston-Salem, where we saw fun sights.

Reynolda

Reynolda is the home of R.J. Reynolds’ and his wife Katharine’s home built in 1917. It is adjacent to Wake Forest University, the land for which R.J. Reynolds donated. A place we never knew about previously, it houses a wonderful collection of American Art. It was fascinating; a very comfortable home, suitable for entertaining, but not at all pretentious.

My favorite orchids – look at the yellow ones!

There are also beautiful paths throughout the property.

Chris, Karina and Doug all worked on cooking a delicious salmon dinner, then we watched the movie Maiden together. We had a great visit!
