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.
The world’s largest western wear store is hiding in the Country Connection in Garner, North Carolina. This family-owned and operated business, three generations deep, incorporates the love of country music, the outdoors, dancing, and hard work into the largest selection of western wear including hats, shoes, accessories, home furnishings, and work wear. The dream began in a 1,200-square-foot building in 1992, but the confined space limited the grand design of offering more. In 2002, Country Connection opened at its new location in a 12,500-square-foot building allowing a vast collection of items for the entire family. Let’s take a look.
