Durham and Raleigh NC

Friday and Saturday 

We left Kingsport headed into NC for a short stop in Durham and Raleigh on our way to Hunting Island SC for a short beach vacation.

Friday was a dreary drive with little rain but very grey skies. We listened to a tape and made short stops for gasoline and lunch.  We arrived in Durham at Jeff's house about 3 and enjoyed an afternoon visiting and playing with grandson Daniel.

We visited Mama Dip's in Chapel Hill for a southern cooked dinner - fried chicken, chicken and dumplings, country fried steak, orka, apples, green beans, biscuits, cornbread and slaw.  Some of us enjoyed all of the above!

Saturday we had a lazy morning and then headed off for a reunion of the guys that Ben attended college with at North Carolina State about 50 years ago.  It is always fun to catch up with all of these families that we see only about once a year. After a good lunch and lots of reminiscing we headed back to Durham for some Star War's Lego video games!

For dinner we did a little more exploring and eating!  We traveled to a Korean Restraunt Soo's near the NC State Campus and enjoyed several Korean dishes.  One of the favorites being the Korean Fried Chicken.

Great Chicken at Soo's
It is now raining and we expect it to continue through most of our drive day tomorrow.  Thanks Robin, Jeff and Daniel for a great visit!  On to the beach !!
