Our Greenway Walk to Coffee

Most mornings we take our newspaper and books, and walk somewhere for coffee. Come along through the North Carolina morning with us on one of our favorite walks.
First you have to cross the stream to get out of the apartment complex.
Then it is up and onto the greenway.

Past the middle school with a very unique nickname.
A typical greenway scene.
The journey takes us through a city park.
The trail to the left goes to downtown Cary. We are going right.Often see snails and snakes cross here.
The greenways pass under the roads.
Our destination.

This is the first in a short series of posts on our "Second Life" in Cary, North Carolina. Cary is pretty much in the center of the triangle created by Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. This post's focus is on our apartment complex. A thank you to Leslie for taking the photos.
