This week I'm doing my standard #PastorSpringBreak after Easter and chose to do my second #QueenCityStroll today. Gorgeous day for it - sunny and high 70's/low 80s. This time I started at Presbyterian/Novant Hospital and headed into Uptown via Elizabeth St. Took a right on North Davidson St. and followed that all the way out to NoDa, a hip little community a few miles outside of Uptown. After some lunch and visiting my cousin and his husband, I came back via Villa Heights and Plaza Midwood, on to Elizabeth and back to the hospital. Total miles: 9.5.
What really amazed me about this walk was not just the diversity of neighborhoods I encountered, but how frequently I encountered that diversity. Sometimes literally from house to house - a fancy-schmantzy new construction, right next to a scrawny old brick. It made me wonder - what was there before that fancy-schmantzy house showed up, and where are the the people who used to live there?
Anyway, enjoy the pics below. As before, I comment only when I feel some explanation is needed. Otherwise, I let the pics speak for themselves.
Charlotte peeps - where should my next #QueenCityStroll take me?
