Thursday morning we set out for the wedding in Brevard. We decided to take the back roads from Chatsworth . We went up 411 to Highway 64....oh my goodness. If you want to take a curvy road then Highway 64 is for you. Let me just put it this way, as we came down the mountain to Brevard I breathed a sigh of relief.:)
Halfway between Chatsworth and Brevard we stopped in Murphy NC for lunch. I had never been to Murphy but I do remember hearing stories about couples eloping there because you did not need a blood test to get married. ( I am really dating myself here.) It is a cute small town and with the help of Trip Advisor we found a local place to eat lunch.
The Red Brick Deli...
That is a picture of the owner on the back of the tees. He was a very nice guy....circulating around the restaurant between turning out sandwiches in the kitchen.
The sandwiches were huge and could easily be shared. We also got some apple pie to share and it was the hit of the deli for me. It was so good.
The owner began talking with us and when he found out that Amy was from the Keys, he gifted us a slice of his home made Key Lime pie.
So if you are ever in the area, check out Red Brick Deli.
We needed fortification for the afternoon drive because the road only got worse. I am so glad Marvin is a good driver. It was pretty much hair pin curves for 40 miles. I declared that we were taking the Interstate home from Brevard!!
We arrived around four in the afternoon and checked into our Air B and B. We enjoyed dinner at Square Root restaurant and then spent some time visiting Barbara, William and their children in front of a roaring fire. Maggie and Seth came in and we got some one on one time with the happy couple.
