2012-07-31 - NC to VA - Wilkesboro to Buena Vista (3)On the last day of July, we moved from North Carolina to Virginia.  We had planned to stay  at Roanoke, but the campgrounds were full.  We stayed instead at the little town of Buena Vista.  The drive up the interstate was very scenic.

The campground we chose was in a Buena Vista City park, the Glen Maury Park… although we thought it a little overpriced, it was a very pretty park.

Just to the side of us in the park was the Virginia Historic Landmark, the Paxton House.   Built in the 1830’s the house is lovely.

Several Canadian geese were in resident, making an appearance each night and morning.

We were parked in an open field with no one close by.  We spent 3 nights there, enjoying the solitude.
