My first stop in Chapel Hill was Coker Arboretum, the university gardens. The sign at the garden’s entry states it is designed as a place of contemplation and rest. With the lovely shady trees and beautiful flowers it was.
While the grapevines, Black Eyed Susans, and Cornflowers were to be expected I certainly never thought this would appear in the garden.
A lovely deer graced my visit.
While nothing can compare to the deer in the garden, here are some pictures of the beautiful campus.
While walking past sorority houses I noted young women dressed to kill. Unaware of why these gals were dressed up I inquired of a reliable source who I later found out was the “sorority recruiter.” This was interview day for sorority placement. In the front yard of one of the sorority houses sat 100 ladies sitting at small tables chatting with each other.
Maybe we could transfer this activity to Washington D.C.?
Learn something new everyday.
Next… OFF CAMPUS
Patterson’s Hill Country Store
This antique store with chuck full of memorabilia. If you are into antiques of any type it certainly is worth the trip and not far from the main drag.
And to end the day a nature walk at the North Carolina Botanical Garden trails. The Streamside Trail was restful, peaceful, and cool. Give it a try when you are in the area.
