I, again, have no idea what these are but the are adjacent to the parking lot of the NC Museum of Art and were intentionally planted there as a drought resistant, heat resistant boarder for the lot. Whatever they may be they are pretty in the breeze.
but a few photos too. An art installation at the NC Museum of Art along one of the many trails.
and this happens. The West is tough!
Slightly cooler weather is seeping in -and may be soon blown in, so here is a hint from a walk in New England a couple of years ago.
It always seems to me that Labor Day is an awkward holiday. Some see it only as the "end of summer" or back to school - except for many that was days or even weeks ago, others for the start of fall sports, i.e. football and only a few for the celebration of the work ethic that helped make this an amazing country - and we celebrate it with a day off! Whatever your day is like, mine is just a work day - I hope you enjoy it and appreciate the contributions of those who allowed our economy to reach a point where this kind of day is celebrated.
Here he is even a bit closer.
"O Lord, what a variety of things you have made! In wisdom you have made them all. The earth is full of your creatures." Psalm 104:24 NLT
Our next large mammal was way too close. He emerged from the lake and instead of going away from us headed toward us on a narrow trail where left was in the water and right a steep bank of rip-rap. We just got across and up the hill a wee bit (and behind a tree) when he went past on the trail at arms length. Magnificent animal and my favorite to see.
"the more they seem to be the same." In Boston a statue of King George was toppled and much of it melted to make musket balls. By careful analysis it was determined that this ball recovered at Monmouth NJ was one of those balls. This is at the newly opened Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia. More about that collection later.
Clearly they snuck in while the sun was dark!
At the downtown City Plaza farmer's market in Raleigh. I don't think they had sushi when the buildings were constructed a few generations ago.
So, there is a large mural on a wall by the downtown farmers market. I had driven by it before but stopped on a Sunday night to take a photo. Then, my grandson discovered this little sculpture - about 8 inches high, that apparently is the "source" of the mural as his little thought bubbles go on and on.
...on the Ocean City, NJ, Boardwalk.
Did you catch it?
Waypoint Church Partners worked with Point Church in Raleigh as they opened their eighth campus and Waypoint our 39th project. It was an excellent opening day with well over 350 people in attendance.
There are two rather large heads out of wire at the NC Museum of Art. They look different in different light. They are the newest additions at the growing outdoor art along the various trails at NCMA.
Or should be, from the Monterey Aquarium.
Not much to say...
I think you might want to skip this one going national. The root beer selection was just fair, lots of jerky options. Even the sentence sounds weird.
This is a hidden courtyard at the NCMoA with a beautiful pool and several sculptures. When the sun is setting it is an even more beautiful place. We enjoy walking here there are several miles of paths and trails and always something to see.
