Another volunteer day with the Friends of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Yesterday was preparation for today’s Brineger Cabin Day. Each year the Friends hold a celebration day doing crafts such as making apple butter, dying and spinning wool, etc. showing the lifestyle of the family that lived there in the little cabin from 1880 to 1935. There is also a working garden on the property the Friends keep up. I worked the Friends information tent today from 9 – 2.
The day started out sunny then turned cloudy then sunny again. It had been forecast to rain and/or storm most of the afternoon but so far it’s held off. Temperatures are in the upper 70’s with a breeze but it’s hot in the sun. They will finish up around 4pm.
