Canadian mystery writers Vicki Delany, Elizabeth J Duncan and Mary Jane Maffini are on a book tour of North Carolina, under the direction and guidance of media escort Molly Weston.
Here’s what happened today, Easter Sunday, April 24, 2011.
A beautiful day in North Carolina. Bright blue sky, very warm. You might say hot, as temperature reached 90 degrees this afternoon.
Molly treated us to the most beautiful buffet at the Carolina Club in the George Watts Hill Alumni Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
It’s a beautiful campus, with quite a few celebrated alumni.
Smith Hall, the UNC theatre where Andy Griffith, of Mayberry fame, got his start.

After lunch, we drove out to the day lily and koi farm operated by Molly’s husband.
A basket of cotton. It represents so much to the south
