Carolina Wren Building A New Home

One of our local Carolina Wren's has decided to build a nest in our yard, but not in the birdhouse that we have out on the fence. Oh no, she has to build it in a plastic water bucket we have laying on the water barrel. I had been watching for a couple days now and noticed her gathering stuff to make a nest with and she would land on the fence. Then from there she headed out to the rain barrel. So I went out and took a look and sure enough, there in the water bucket she has started making a nest. I hope we can make this all work out for her.

What a place for a home. Big, dry, and nice size hole to fly in and out of. 

A little closer look.

As close as I could get with the camera. Hey doesn't look like much but she calls it home.

Court Street, Jacksonville, NC

Where did they all go? The jewelry store? The bars? The restaurants? The clothing stores? But, as I stopped to walk and take a couple of pictures I could still hear the sounds, see the sights, and smell the food from my memories of Court Street. So many changes in the past 46 years... 

And of course, don't forget Old Bridge Street

Stonewall Jackson Training School

Welcome to the Stonewall Jackson Training School located just outside Concord, NC. These here are the original buildings that were built back in 1909. Of course there is a much newer facility located behind all these buildings now. It was the first juvenile home in the state of North Carolina. I have to sit here and wonder what kind of boys were sent here. How were they treated here? Did they go on and lead productive lives from here? 

The Cannon House

One of the "cottages", as they were called, where the boys were put up. 

Another one of the "cottages".

The grounds around the school and cottages.

Concord Mills Mall

Finally back to the walking routine, I hope. On the cold and really hot days I can come here and walk in the mall. It's .8 miles per lap and if you walk all the entrance's it's 1 mile per lap. If the weather is good then I can go to the Fairfield Park over in Mint Hill and walk one of the two courses there.
