August 1, 2020 Newton Grove North Carolina A Taste of Heaven Campground
After days of unbearable heat and humidity, we finally found just a little bit of relief in Newton Grove. The humidity was maybe 85 percent instead of 90. 🥵 It did cool off a bit and we had the best sleep yet. This may be a taste of heaven, but the bugs are hell!
You can see that the locals are working to rebuild the dam and preserve this piece of history. It was an old corn grinding mill. We’re seeing a lot of historical buildings like this as welll as markers for Civil War battles.
Vader’s nice “batwing” awning
And this is definitely tobacco country.
We found a beautifully restored plantation on our route. We couldn’t go in to the buildings due to COVID. The grounds were interesting but a stark reminder of other times.
