For Part 1 of our weekend, click here!
Saturday, we got up early (as I tend to do when I'm on vacation for some reason...). We were going to hit up the free breakfast at our hotel, but there was a SWARM of pre-teen girls and their mothers there for some conference that were taking up the entire lobby. Plus, the food we did manage to get to wasn't great. Fortunately, we had a Cracker Barrel next door that was more than welcoming. :)
After breakfast, we checked out of the hotel and headed to the Durham Farmer's Market.
I was a little disappointed that there wasn't more fruit, especially given that it's the season for it. But oh well. We did see a bunch of food trucks, but of course, we had already eaten, so we didn't stop.
After the Farmer's Market, we went to the Duke Gardens. I had never been to the gardens-- I mean, it was in the heart of enemy territory, aka Duke University, when I lived nearby... But it was so beautiful! It's 55 acres of gardens in the middle of the university. It reminded me of the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens that we went to for our anniversary last year. Fortunately, the weather was MUCH better this time around. :)
After we left the gardens, we made a quick pit stop at Starbucks then made our way to Chapel Hill for our first baseball game of the day!
One of my favorite things about Chapel Hill is how everything is
Carolina blue. Even the trash bags. :)
George Steinbrenner's daughter went to UNC, and the family is
a big supporter of Carolina baseball!
Donny knows how to dress appropriately for Carolina sports.
