Magic at the Strand


The Strand Theater on Waynesville’s Main Street beckoned us and Stan & Mary back again, this time on the opening weekend of the latest movie in the J.K.Rowling world of wizardry. Set in 1926, it’s not exactly a Harry Potter film but rather the tale behind one of the textbooks that Harry used at Hogwarts. A movie at The Strand is a more intimate theater setting than at the mega theaters that we’ve so often experienced. We four all loved Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. We weren’t quite quick enough afterwards to score a table at the Boojum Taproom but instead enjoyed a most delicious dinner at Blossom on Main. A nice finish to our interlude in the mountains of North Carolina!

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
