Thanksgiving in Woodstock.

Today we met Lynn for Thanksgiving lunch. We arrived at Cracker Barrel at 11:30 and did not have to wait. Not many places are open on this holiday so the restaurant gets very busy.

We wanted a place that serves other main dishes besides turkey and also has some side dishes that don't contain any of our allergens. My daughters and I have certain foods we can't eat, not all the same ones.

Marie and Frank had the full turkey dinner. I had a ham dinner and Lynn had one with chicken-fried steak.

I have some other photos of the Woodstock area to share, not taken today but showing a bit of Shenandoah County: A water tower, a horse and fence, a farm gate, a sign with the 1752 date that Woodstock was established, and another restaurant.

The horse does not look impressed with me!

Fences Around the World.

Sharing with Signs, Signs.


  1. Lovely horse against the fence and lovely white gate

  2. Sounds lovely and the horse is so pretty! Have a lovely weekend ☺

  3. ...Linda, I am glad that you had a good day together. The Chop House looks interesting! Enjoy your weekend.

  4. Hello, love the beautiful horse. The Chophouse motorcycle and sign are cool. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy weekend!

  5. I love the horse, very pretty. The chophpuse sign is cool as is the historic Woodstock sign. Have a wonderful weekend, Linda.

  6. The horse is thinking, 'why can't she photograph my better side?'

  7. Amazing you could get in Cracker Barrel on Thanksgiving Day! The one in Tupelo is absolutely packed on holidays. I sometimes think people get there at breakfast and stay through lunch! However, my husband and I had a very nice lunch at Applebee's.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  8. So pleased that you had a good day together.

    All the best Jan

  9. Restaurant was a good choice ... something for everybody. Such pretty country.
