A Night at Cody Creek!

Out in the middle of mostly nowhere Dobson, NC is a very unique place called  Cody Creek.

It’s more than a restaurant – it’s a whole getaway! 

There are cabins to rent, a covered bridge, a little church that also straddles the creek with the creek burbling underneath.

It’s a place for family reunions, for weddings, for other events, but the biggest draw of all is the restaurant.  Be prepared to wait a LONG TIME to get in – the place is huge, but so is the clientele waiting to be seated!

We put our names on the list and then had time to wander the grounds and take some photos.


Stop by the general store for a cold coke or an ice cream while you wait!

((Yes, life is short, eat the ice cream first!))


The little log chapel across a field

It was a beautiful evening, but still, muggy and HOT!


Covered bridge with flowers blooming!


Standing at the fence around the log church, looking toward the covered bridge.


Classic cars!

We got there just a bit too late.  There was a classic car club that had all driven to Cody Creek to enjoy a dinner together…..to beat the crowds they arrived at 4pm and were just dispersing as we were wandering the grounds…I LOVE classic cars as much as I love vintage sewing machines….and it was fun to talk to the owners.


Sweet ride!

I love this style with the skirted wheel wells….makes the car look like it has no tires at all!  There was a group of 3 ladies in this beauty – Classic cars are not just for guys!


Hello, Gorgeous!


1934! WOW!


No Junk in this Trunk!


They certainly don’t make them like this anymore!

We had a great evening out with friends and made it home after 9pm. 

And yes, there was SOME sewing yesterday – I’m making more blocks:


The cutting table was busy!


24 dark with light chains and 24 light with dark chains ---

This evening there will be a BBQ at the home of some other mountain friends ----and tomorrow afternoon we head home!

My time up here has flown past so quickly --

Have a great Sunday, everyone!

    I LOVE the leaves on the tree on the right in the church photo! They look like 5 pointed stars! So cute!!!

  2. What a wonderful looking place! So much fun. I agree. Eat ice cream first! lol! Thanks for the post. Really enjoyed the cars too.

  3. You certainly turn out those blocks! Enjoyed your photos too. Hope you have a good journey back from the cabin.

  4. Just wanted to say thanks for the no reply blogger post. I was all like-that. Ant be me, right.. It was. And it's fixed, so thanks!

  5. Since you love classic cars you must get someone to take you to the Fountainhead antique car museum when you're in Fairbanks next year!

  6. Love the vintage cars too, especially the hood ornaments. Looks like a nice place to visit.

  7. I love antique cars...have a 1954 MG TF (like in Love Story). When we are traveling we stop at about as many car museums as quilts shops.....maybe I should say we spend as much time in one as the other!

    In Paducah to go to National Quilt Museum tomorrow and will go to Paula's Quilting Pantry on way home.

  8. looks like a cool place to visit. Those are some awesome cars!

  9. That looks like a really neat place to visit.

    Thanks for posting your blocks-in-progress. Scrap quilting, with all the colors and pattern combinations, is a bit overwhelming for me, to say the least. Seeing what you are doing is helping this first time scrapper.
