A Day Trip to Henderson, NC

With all my dogs to tend to, you can imagine that vacations around here tend to be "Day Trips". One of my favorite places to visit is Henderson, NC. That area is full of neat little shops & Antique stores that line the country road that leads back to Asheville. My fave store to visit in Henderson...

This year I noticed something new! In front of many of the stores they had colorful Goats...all theme painted with brass plates telling their stories. I had seen these in other towns...Horses in Lexington, KY, Bears in Gatlinburg & Cherokee, NC...Here is the Mast General Store's Goat. He is called "The Goat of Many Colors" and is painted in a lovely patchwork design.

Another favorite Goat was in front of an Ice Cream Shop with a friend, who loved Ice Cream too!

Then there was this one that caught my eye...

I had to have my picture taken with this one...I'm such a sucker for a guy named "Phil"...LOL!

What a cute picture of you Starla, if only everyone could hear your adorable accent too!!!

I love the lil goats around town - we have something like this around Kansas City, but they are big Steers. It's always fun to see how they are decorated with vibrant colors!

what a neat little town Starla, and I'll bet there's lots of goodies in that General Store too!

I sure hear ya on the day trip thing Starla, and even that can be a bit better be a short day trip. :)

The goats are cute...and I agree w/ Cookie, what a cute pic of you, and yes, I too love your lil southern accent!

C'mon up here, and we'll go up north for a day trip, and I'll head down south soon after, and we can visit Asheville, and hit this lil town on the way, OK?
We can dream :)
