Awaiting Mr. Gibbard

Ben Gibbard

We had a great time in Saxapahaw! We had lunch at the general store, explored the river, checked out some local art, and had drinks at sunset on a balcony overlooking the river. Once night fell, we made our way into the Haw River Ballroom and enjoyed a great show by Advance Base and Ben Gibbard. We accomplished everything on our agenda (I even learned how to correctly pronounce the name of the damn place), save one thing. I did not get to meet Mr. Gibbard.  :-(   The dream continues...

  1. Your pictures are gorgeous! What a beautiful setting!

  2. Looks like it was a beautiful day! LOVE the yellow cardi, Bonnie! Where'd you end up finding it?

  3. The pictures by the river are just lovely. I really love them ;-)

  4. Dare I say that the river shots may be your best photos yet!

  5. Thanks, Catherine! I have the Outdoor Cafe Cardigan from Anthro in grey, and I love it. I remembered that in came in yellow, so I decided to look for it on Ebay. I didn't have any luck, so I put a post on Effortless Anthropologie's Trade Market. The very next day I received an email from someone who had it and wanted to sell! I couldn't be happier with it. I just received it last week and I've already worn it like 5 times! LOL!

  6. Thank you! It was very beautiful. It reminded me of a location from Lord of the Rings. I kept telling Jerry I felt like I was in Mordor. LOL!

  7. I love love your boots (actually bought the same ones a few months back b.c. of seeing them on your blog). Wondering if you have any tips on keeping them in such great shape? TIA.

  8. I love Saxapahaw and the Haw River Ballroom! I've seen two shows there now (Archers of Loaf and Tallest Man on Earth) and it's by far my favorite music venue in the area (I'm about 30-40 min away). Cool pictures.
