2009-11-14 Saturday - Carolina Pottery Festival

My plan on Saturday was to unload the gas kiln and then head out to the Carolina Pottery Festival. When I got to Clayworks the gas kiln was at 386 F and it needed to be under 200 F before we cracked the door. We removed the peeps and the temperature began dropping so S-L-O-W-L-Y that Ralph suggested we go to the festival first and then come back to unload later. (Good idea, Ralph!) As we were preparing to leave, Kim arrived and we convinced her to join us. (It wasn't a tough sell. :8^)

We had a great time seeing all the amazing work and visiting with all our friends. On the way back we stopped at the famous Red Bridges BBQ (locally known as "The Lodge") where Ralph treated us to lunch. Once sated we high-tailed it back to Charlotte to unload that kiln.
