Recently, we enjoyed a garden tour of the historic homes in 4th Ward. We especially enjoyed this water fountain.
These are solar panel trees found on top of a parking garage in Uptown Charlotte. We recently went to the IMAX theater, at the Discovery Place. While there we used the electric vehicle charger which was powered by these solar panels.
Last weekend our grandson visited and we had an adventure at the Discovery Place. We enjoyed the dinosaur exhibit, our grandson played with the dinosaurs in augmented reality, dug for bones, launched a meteorite, and was inspired by an iMax movie call dream big.
Oh, and they had a tyrannosaurus, in a box, which was making lots of noise ;)
We eat at the Ashbury because they have great food. That and we like their bar.
But today there was an extra treat of art by Fonda Doerre. Personally I was very impress with her paintings of barns.
This photo was taken at 235 North Tryon. Following is a link to the Ashbury Restaurant website. Following is a link to an article about Chef Matthew Krenz winning Chef of the Year award. The best in the state.
Also, following is a link to Fonda Doerre’s website.
At Discovery Place science is fun. As the signs say you can play, build, and touch science.
We have taken our grandson several times and look forward to our next visit. The most memorable visit was when they demonstrated fire and explosions ;). We also enjoyed a tour of our solar system, the construction of a robot, stuffing newspaper in an air cannon, building six foot tall towers, and numerous other activities.
Our preference is to enjoy the Dandelion Market on Sunday afternoons when the bar is quite. However for those in search of a crowd the time to go is Friday or Saturday night. They also have a big crowd at brunch. Maybe because if the Bloody Mary bar ;)
