Cabin and church

Wagon train

Soda shop

We toured the Appalachian heritage farm that is south of Huntington. The road to get to it was real West Virginia, curvy, hills and valleys, narrow. This was children's day so not all the museums were open but we did spend time in the ones that were - the man behind this place was a true picker. We took the wagon ride and enjoyed talking to the interpreters in the transportation, store and early days museums. The blacksmith was operational and was making a coat rack, we had a good conversation with him as well. They have festivals on weekends and this was a good stop. We then drove to Kenova that is named for tri state area: Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia and had ice cream at an old fashioned soda fountain at the Griffith and Feil drug store, since 1892.

We rested Thursday and then checked out the shopping mall in Barboursville that is very close to us - found some bargains at the American Eagle store and checked out Ollies outlet - we have one in Ocala and should stop by when we return. They do have some good buys on name brand items but one has to spend time to find them. The shopping mall had a Kitchen Collection store with a 1 quart stainless steel pot that would work on my induction stove - wish I had held out instead of buying that 2 quart pot in Celina.
