Under Brown Mountain Lights the Beast of Blandenboro wanders this magical land where lighthouses shine on kingdoms only accessible by ferries. A Lost Colony of legends and pirates revealed in historical sites and majestic mountains with views that make us weep. The home of handmade sculptures and scrumptious cuisine. North Carolina leaves this long-time writer and artist breathless with endless surprises, including the unlikely warmth a winter walk on the beach can bring.
For you appreciators of the original, check out one of the coolest places to shop in Enfield, North Carolina. Southern Secrets at Mears began as one store in historic downtown Enfield and has ambitiously grown into four just a few close steps from each other. Most of the business owners thought enough of their homes to return or stay and set-up-shop to enrich this small town’s revenue. Be sure to explore the one-of-a-kind paintings, hand-carved wooden pieces, furniture, jewelry, food, wine, and books. This charming store’s vast inventory goes beyond little-town ideas, yet don’t underestimate the value of the sweet, small-town feel that compels you to return and share it with everyone you know.
Be sure to keep informed of the scheduled festive events throughout the year at the shop. Whether it’s a holiday, a change of season, or newly-arrived paintings, traveling to Enfield is worth the trip if only to view the exquisite window displays lighting up this interesting town. While you are in the area, visit another nearby historic town, Halifax, known as The Birthplace of Freedom.
