After court in Morganton, North Carolina (Burke County), I drove through Drexel, Valdese, Connelly Springs, Rutherford College, and Hildebran. Two BBQ shacks were closed since it was Monday. I took a quick peak at Rhodhiss Lake. A local told me it’s more of a river than a lake. Still looked pleasant and had fisherman lowering their boats into it. I was jealous.

Frye Daddy’s Diner was open in Hildebran at the corner of Center Street and Highway 70. For $5.75 I received a meat & two vegetables, Choice of bread, and dessert. The hamburgers smelled good too. I’ll be back. I need to try the cobbler next time.

I was up in court for a will contest case in Burke County, North Carolina. Nice to meet the folks in the Clerk’s office and the Burke County bar.
