Have we piqued your curiosity?
Are you wondering if Sharkie and Blue flew off to Bethlehem?
Maybe they took a ride on a spaceship?
Nope, they visited our famous Mill Mountain Star yesterday. It is the World’s largest man-made star, and it is right here in the Star City…Roanoke, Virginia. You can read about it below.
We visited during the day, so the star was not lit, but if you Google, Mill Mountain Star photos, you can see oodles of photos of it lit up.
Not only did they get to see the star, but also a panoramic view of the Roanoke Valley. The photo doesn’t include the entire valley. You can see our downtown in the distance on the left side of the photo. We live about one mile from downtown to the left and beyond the scope of the cropped image.
We’d like to give them one additional adventure before they return home, but that would involve snow, and we don’t have any in the forecast for the near future We might have to save that for a future visit. We know our brofur, Bailey Boat Cat, is missing his furiends.
But stay tuned, you never know what they might get up to prior to winging their way back to Nocturne.
Se y’all tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday.
Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Holy moley, that’s huge. And it lights up….cool.
Wow, that star is awesome…we bet it is gorgeous when lit…beautiful pics of the valley too! Cuddles to F & G…
Wow, that is one huge star! What a neat thing for Sharkie and Blue to experience. 🙂
I miss the place, lived there for a year wish i could go back. Maybe i will someday. The zoo is a great place to visit to,and the marketplace and downtown stores and eateries. I could go on but you get the idea im sure.
What a cool adventure! We’ve never seen such a big star before. Bet they enjoyed their stay with you all for sure! Too bad they have to go home 🙁 It’s always sad to say goodbye to furiends.
Sampy sends 2039485720938475 kisses to Astrid, and we all send love and hugs.
What a cool star! It’s up so high that you can probably see that all the way over at Bailey’s boat!
Wow that is a cool star fur sure Lucky Sharky and blue. Our Dad was all over there back when he rode motorcycles but missed it so we can show him something new. Thanks
What a huge star! Sharkie and Blue will get lost.
What a fun trip! That star is PAWSOME! 🙂 xx Roxy & Tigerlino <3
Wow- they travel more than I ever have in my 45 years.
Thank you. I had not heard of this! I love nighr, the moon, and stars. This is so intriguing to me. I would live to see it someday. I am so glad you shared it! Hugs!
See, we always knew you were blog stars!
Oh that made me so homesick. I loved the Star as a child and looked for it every chance I had as a little girl and I still doon the rare times I am able to get to Roanoke. I isa that view, seeing it in person. Roanoke Valley. The words are like music to me.
That star is so cool!! I’d love to see it in person someday.
What a fun adventure for Sharkie and Blue!
What a great trip Sharkie & Blue have had.They will have so many fabulous stories to tell Bailey. Thank you also for giving a little view of Roanoke.
Nose kisses to my sweetie Ms Lisbeth
What fun!! Sharkie and Blue seem to be having a pawsome time!
The Florida Furkids
My human is surprised she hasn’t been there – she’s been to a lot of places not far from there.
Wow. We bet that valley is really pretty. We think we need to travel more.
Excellent visit! What an amazing star that is. Thank you for sharing your trip with us.
