#DowntownRaleigh

Monday, February 27th, 2017

Duane’s day off is Friday. So, this past Friday, I enthusiastically suggested breakfast out + a photography tour of downtown Raleigh.  (It should be noted here that he also agreed to this idea enthusiastically.)

Our first stop: Cafe Lucarne in City Market, a pretty minimalist place with minimalist food, yet BIG on flavor. A  friend of mine raved about the avocado toast there, but my sweet tooth needed something that wasn’t green, so I had the ricotta toast with roasted apples + honey. It was delicious.  Duane had a chicken sandwich with house-made honey bbq sauce that was also REALLY good. The staff was really pleasant, too. You should go.

How much is that doggie in the window?

Then, there were the camellias. It’s Friday, I’m in love.

Photo Feature Wednesday: Life’s a Beach

Good Wednesday morning!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a photo gallery on Photo Feature Wednesday.

In honor of the end of summer (sniffle, sniffle), I’m posting the pictures of our beach vacation with Duane’s family in Oak Island, NC.

 

I hope you enjoy, and let me know in the comments below what your favorite summer activity, vacation, experience, etc. was this year.

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”
― John Lubbock, The Use Of Life
