Everyday begins with an iced mocha latte at Cup A Joe on Hillsborough Street. Reading the Sunday paper and coupon clipping while people watching or chatting to those we know.
We walked down Hillsborough Street along North Carolina State University. NCSU was founded on March 7, 1887 by the Morrill Act of 1862, which allowed the U.S. government to donate federally owned land to the states for the purpose of establishing colleges that would teach “agriculture and the mechanic arts.”
There are still a few classic houses which have not been replaced by businesses in the University District.
Chinese broccoli with oyster sauce
Edamame & Mushroom Dumplings
Soft Shell Crab with Seaweed Salad
And they always begin with carrot and ginger soup
After eating, we continued our walk down to the Historic Fayetteville Street District. Looking South from the Capitol you see the performing arts center, Maymandi Center, and other arts and performing venues.
And government buildings,
The NC Department of Insurance -Albemarle Building
SECU -State Employees Credit Union Building
Confederate Monument – He is looking West … to the sunset….
First Baptist Church, 1859
North Carolina Veterans Monument – I heard her name is Tobaccolandia and she is holding up a tobacco leaf.
South view of the Capitol – Canova’s Statue of Washington, (1910)
We stop by the Raleigh French Bakery-
