After checking out of The Windover Inn located in Waynesville, North Carolina, we traveled just a few minutes away to Maggie Valley to visit a unique museum.
Mr. Mickey started riding motorcycles in 1948, and he is definitely a car guy. Knowing that he would thoroughly enjoy visiting the famous Wheels Through Time Museum, I asked him to take me there. The Wheels Through Time Museum was featured in the hit reality TV show “American Restoration” on the History Channel this year.
We started the day with breakfast at the Inn. I wore White House|Black Market jeans in honor of our casual outing. These are the Slim Jeans. I could never get actual skinny jeans on over my muscular calves. The top is an old one by Clara Sunwoo via ShopMyFairLady.com. The necklace is by French Kande. The shoes are old by Nine West. Before we entered the museum, I switched from the heels to flat sandals by Vince Camuto.
I was fascinated by this tandem bicycle. The rims, the fenders, and several other parts of the bike were made from wood!
Mr. Mickey did indeed enjoy looking at the vast array of items.
We were fortunate to be present when the museum founder Dale Walksler, was shooting a video in the store area. Afterward, we waited for our turn to talk with him. What a great guy! When he found out about Mr. Mickey’s world-famous collection of fine antique Mickey Mouse toys, he invited us into his office to show us an animated Mickey in a car that was once used at Disneyland. We became fast friends and now look forward to showing him and his lovely wife around when they come to Johnson City.
