I had an hour after dropping my daughter off at the library for her tutoring session. After spending an hour with CNN and the terrible news of the Oklahoma City tornado, I felt like I needed a walk. I should have had my dog, but took my camera instead. Next to the library is the neighborhood where I started my business in 1985. Cameron Park as it is called is one of Raleigh's gems. With wonderful 100 year old homes, back ally's, and parks that meander through the neighborhood, there is always something wonderful to look at. From the back alley's you can peer into exotic and traditional gardens, and then find yourself wandering down a wooded path next to a creek.
