Charlotte Marathon

Charlotte Marathon
The Charlotte Marathon was ran yesterday (November 12th) and as the photo shows it was cold. These two runners stayed warm with tin foil wrap. Actually this is a thing now and I assume you can buy these sheets in any running shop. I understand they are light weight and do a good job of blocking the wind.

This photo was taken at the intersection of South Tryon and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. For those who want to run next year; following is the Facebook page for the Charlotte Marathon.

fish sculptures and fountains

A fish sculptures and fountains on the Green in Uptown Charlotte
Our Saturday morning rituals include taking coffee to the Green (a park in front of our condo) and enjoying the activity. We always sit on a bench next to the fish sculptures and fountains. The reason is because they come with built in entertainment. Watching the children play is a joy and this Saturday there was a wedding at Saint Peters Catholic Church next to the fountains. In the background of this photo you can see one of those attending in a very colorful dress.

This photo was taken at 435 South Tryon Street in Uptown Charlotte. Following is a link to a Wikipedia article about the Green.

good morning special

The good morning special at Dean and Deluca in Uptown Charlotte
The good morning special at Dean and Deluca in Uptown Charlotte was French Toast and bacon. And the gentleman behind the sign skillfully and graciously prepares our breakfast every Saturday. We always order bagel sandwiches but the special was very appealing. But what caught my eye was the #goodmorning hashtag (smile).

This photo was taken at 201 South Tryon Street. Following is a link to the Dean and Deluca website.
