Happy Tuesday around Town


Thank you to our 

Recently we took a ride over to Cameron Village Shopping center.  We knew there were lots of new shops and cafes.

Most days before I retired (2011) I had lunch at one of their cafes.  It is within walking distance from NC State University. I can not tell you how very very happy I was to see this beautiful mural.  It was a block long.

Now study the hummingbird carefully.  It appears he is standing but the rest of the story is there was a diamond shaped orange road work sign smack in the middle of the sidewalk.  I had no idea when I snapped the photo from this angle it would
look like a stand for the hummingbird.

While enjoying an egg salad and dill pea macaroni cold plate

Yes we went again yesterday.  They only make their famous Egg Salad or Pimento Cheese every other Monday.  I like both


  1. That mural is magnificent in so many ways. What a wonderful sight.
    The food looks pretty good too!

  2. ha! sometimes it is like magic when we watch a photo later... and we love egg salad.. summer is the time for that... :o)

  3. stunning mural! I love it when I find things in a photo that I did not SEE when taking the photo.. it does look just like a stand and I zoomed in to see the stand. I find I am liking all the murals around town here

  4. That is a fantastic muriel. We have lots in our tiny little town, but nothing is colorful as this and especially with birds. Looks like he had a great time and some great food.

  5. What a gorgeous mural and lunch looks so yummy!

  6. Cool mural, but those long ones are hard to get in a photo, still we love finding good murals.

  7. That's an incredible mural, the artist is amazing!

    Lunch looked yummy! I sometimes would get a cold plate for lunch when I lived in Nova Scotia, but that's not something they have here in this region, at least not that I've ever seen in my 28 years living here.

  8. Gorgeous mural! I love the video with the colorful yellow and red umbrellas. It's such a summer thing... reminds me of summers past in a nostalgic way. I want that lunch! I am intrigued by the dill pea macaroni salad... I have no doubt that is a delicious macaroni salad. Egg salad is a favorite of mine too. Lovely post today, C!

  9. the lunch looks deee lish with a capitol awesome, I’d be there every other monday for sure and
    that mural is absolutely stunning ‼️‼️ the two trees in the front of it are an added bonus. did
    just one artist work on this, do you know ? 💙💚🐟😺

  10. Thanks for pointing out the legs on the hummer. Yes, that sure looks delicious.

  11. Dearest Cecilia,
    A stunning mural and so well done—real looking.
    Enjoying lunch like that is nice in summer.

  13. What a beautiful mural! We love seeing all the different birds in it. We bet it was toasty sitting outside for your lunch even with all those fans going.

  14. That mural is most beautiful. Love all the bold colors.

    I would love to have lunch with you.
