click on photos to enlarge

Since I haven't really shown you much of Duke University besides the Chapel...I'll show you a few shots now:
Different architectural styles

I loved everything that was built in stone though

The Azaleas were blooming everywhere

Beautiful trees...many were very old


A few tidbits: School got out on Tuesday. Braden and Dalton graduated 8th grade...hard to believe they will be in high school this year.
I just took Ozzy outside a little bit ago and saw lightning bugs...the first of the season!

That's my 5 peeps! Now it's your 5 randoms, link back and visit others! Thanks for playing along and have a great weekend!

American Tobacco Historic District . Durham NC

Old 1800's train car, used for corporate events. You can see The Cage in the background from last weeks post. Also, you can see the Lucky Strike water tower in the reflection. I love the scroll-y iron!

If you stopped in last week for Willy Nilly, I apologize for not getting it posted...something came up but all is well now so it will be up and running at midnight!

The Cage

American Tobacco District . Durham

The Cage is an outdoor basketball court. This was awesome! I really wish our county would build stuff like this for the kids. There really isn't much for them to do unless they go to Roanoke.

Willy Nilly Friday 5 No. 83 - Mad Men Addition

click on photos to enlarge
Seeing as how I am totally obsessed with Mad Men right now (on season 6) I am going to feature the American Tobacco Historic District in Durham...which I LOVED!

Lucky Strike! The whole being of Mad Men! (we don't smoke by the way!)


A life size chess game with tobacco leaves, Lucky Strike and the famous bull of Durham!


Is this a Sterling Cooper ad?!

I love Durham...we venture down to Raleigh quite frequently and Durham is about a half hour closer to us but this was our first time to stop...I know we will be back again as there is so much to see and we all just loved the tobacco district!
