My work teammates and I enjoyed a baseball game last night. The weather was great, the beer was refreshing, the game was fast paced, the view was awesome, and the conversation was enjoyable.
Today’s photo shows the loading dock under one of the office towers in Uptown Charlotte. Notice the sliver trash chute and blue trash compator on the left side of the photo. An interestingly small unit.

Welcome to Charlotte Daily Photo
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.
The AIDS Walk was a colorful event. I was especially pleased with volunteers handing our water and snacks to the walkers.
The AIDS Walk Charlotte website states that $147,000+ has been raised.
This giant teeter tooter is found at the light rail Bland street station. It is at least 20 feet long and lots of fun.
There are several similar pieces of participative art on the Rail Trail.
We went out on Cinco De Mayo and quickly realized the crowds were too thick. So we came back today for brunch and we the only patrons ;)
Actually, although they serve brunch, the Hot Taco is more of a bar scene for those that enjoy a crowd.
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.
