Granville County Court House
Warrenton, North Carolina
After spending two days in Oxford we pulled up tent (i.e. -paid our bill at the Comfort Inn - which was very nice, by the way) and headed over to the county seat of Warren County. Warrenton. I have one word for Warrenton. Puh-recious.
Okay, I can just hear all you Oxfordians getting your panties in a wad. I loved Oxford, too. Warrenton is just so rural and out of the way. Oxford sits right off a major highway, but you have to really be lookin' hard to find Warrenton. It's definitely a destination - not a place you need to drive by or through to get to someplace else. Peaceful doesn't even begin to describe it. (Read the above inscription on the photo. That's the essence of what my heart longs for. Hmm...'essence of what my heart longs for'. Sounds a little bit too fancy but you get my drift.)
I did take lots of pictures of old cemetaries, lovely antebellum homes and even an old plantation home that was built by my family. But first I have to find the cord to my camera. (Where is that thing?)
Speaking of road trips, I am starting to get more details of my upcoming book tour so I had should be able to let you know where I'll be in the next few months or so. Although release date isn't until August I do have a few events scheduled for the next couple of weeks.
In the meantime I want to leave you with the link to order a copy before it hits the shelf.
Until next time,
