Come With Us on a Neighborhood Walk to Coffee

The walk begins at our Cary, North Carolina apartment above the garage.

We are walking through the neighborhood
A few stops along the way to look at the flowers. The mild winter has the trees and flowers starting to bloom already.

There is always another hill to climb.

Enter onto the greenway.
The peaceful greenway
A stop at the large wooded roundabout.
Onto the sidewalk with Leslie setting the pace.
Past the Cary high School.
No stopping at the bookstore. Well, maybe just for a minute.

We have arrived at the coffee shop.
Nice way to start the day.

Above a Garage, Below the Mason-Dixon Line

Welcome to this year's apartment in North Carolina. This year we are in Cary, about 10 minutes from our kids. Our apartment is in a house in quiet neighborhood with large trees. We are enjoying walking to coffee shops, malls, and parks. We particularly enjoy our walks that take us down Cary's beautiful greenways.
Pictured above is our dining space, and the double windows that light our living area.
The one person kitchen, or no person, if the oven door is open. The room is also enhanced by the absence of a dishwasher.
Very comfortable sofa with skylight above, and not so comfortable chair (not pictured).
This room is large enough to include a yoga corner, and a play area for Ryan.
The view from our deck.

Last year we enjoyed Chapel Hill, but the traffic, and driving to Cary drove us crazy. This year, being in a house in a neighborhood, makes it feel more like home.
