Spring walk in Downtown Raleigh

While I stayed at home surveying my Kingdom, Mom and Dad took a nice walk in the older part of down town Raleigh.
She made a collage of pretty places the saw on their walk. We hope you enjoy it.

Please click to enlarge..
All of these lovely old homes are within a few blocks of downtown Raleigh. Several are listed on the historic register. The picture under the daffodils is of the old brick used on some of the sidewalks. The picture on bottom left corner of collage is the Governor's Mansion.

  2. Oh Madi, the laser eyes are perfect for keeping watch on your kingdom.

    Love the mosaic, those are beautiful photos. I really like the clock tower, that is an amazing looking building.

    Have a great weekend,

    We are sorry you stayed at home looking a little scary we would have to say!
    We think next time your mom should take you in a little basket!

  12. Oh, how beautiful. I've never been to Raleigh, but Alpha Mom has. She spent a year in NC about a thousand years ago, before I was born. And HER Mom (and also Blog Mom's Mom) went to college at Duke, so I guess there's sort of an ancestral connection to NC with our family. :) I'd love to go on that walk.

  18. Wowee! We can hardly believes you have family living in Morehead City! My mom's been there a coupla times and thinks it's a really Most Wonderful place. Her BFF has lived there for prolly the same amount of time as your daughter. How very much coincidental is that?

    My mom says that it would be REALLY weird if they knew each other, although we know that it's prolly not very much likely. BUT you should go ahead and ask her if she knows somebuddy with the name of Laura Murphy.
