Sunday’s Day Trip

Yesterday’s road trip found Motor Man and me in Edenton, NC. We’ve visited that quaint little town (about an hour and a half from us) several times before. But we found a new adventure there yesterday.

As we were driving into town, we saw a sign for a trolley tour. We signed up for it and had about an hour to wait. The weather was perfect, so we had a picnic in the waterside park in downtown Edenton. (We always pack a picnic lunch for our Sunday drives.)

That’s such a picturesque area, we were glad to have our tripod with us.

This is the Roanoke River Lighthouse. It was built in 1887, and moved to this location in 2007, then fully renovated.

We ‘cruised’ around town for a little while until it was time for our trolley tour.

Our driver, Chris, and narrator, John, both did an excellent job. It was a very entertaining tour. We learned quite a bit about the historic homes, outbuildings and history of Edenton.

I thought this little dog “cairn”  in a flowerbed was adorable.

Another Sunday fun-day full of memories added to our list.

  2. I agree – Edenton is a beautiful town. We’ve not done the trolley tour – might have to go back for that. Made me look up ‘cairn’. I’ve seen them before but didn’t know the correct name for them. Y’all look like it was the perfect outing for you. Thanks for taking us along through your pics.

  3. I love how you guys hold each other!

  4. As I’ve said before – you two can find the places for the interesting day trips .. Edenton looks like a nice place – I really like the pic with the lighthouse and state flag !

  5. Day trips are the best and this looks like an awesome one, especially the trolley tour. We always pack a picnic lunch for our day trips too and find the nicest little spots to eat it. 🙂

    Edenton is a wonderful place for a day trip. I think it is time for Chuck and I to make another day trip. Love the pics. ❤
