Waynesville - A Night Before Christmas

Every year on the second Saturday of December Waynesville, North Carolina closes down Main Street for their "A Night Before Christmas" celebration. It is a small town get-together to usher in the Christmas season.


The street is lined with hundreds of luminaries. Music is provided by local groups and there are often other street performers as well.





All the downtown Waynesville shops and restaurants stay open late.  Many have decorated front windows and provide even more entertainment inside.



For a special treat be sure to take a wagon ride and visit the Bethlehem Marketplace.



Oh, and of course you can't forget about Santa.  Bring your camera and take a picture with the jolly guy and his wife.


Waynesville's A Night Before Christmas is small town America at its best.  If you are in the area you should definitely make an effort to visit.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.


Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
