Charlotte Knights

We sure picked a hot night to attend our first game of the Charlotte Knights. The game started at 7:15 PM and the temp was still around 94, extremely humid, and absolutely no air movement. It was so bad that I really wanted to buy this one vendor's case of cold drinks so I could put my hand and feet in the ice. Hey, first time here and really did enjoy the stadium and game. Now I'm wondering why they want a new stadium in uptown Charlotte.

The main entrance.

The concourse was so clean and enough food and drink vendors spread out on it. I guess what amazed me was the prices on food. It really wasn't bad at all, $3 for a regular hot dog and $3.50 for a Coke. Although I thought that $3.50 for water was a bit on the pricey side, but all in all a family can have a great time here and have some eats and drinks without going bankrupt. 

It really is a nice stadium. Very clean and enough staff to keep in running smoothly.

Beautiful field.

Saturday night they were playing the Norfolk Tides, who are the Triple-A  league for the Baltimore Orioles. Click HERE to go to their home page. 

It's a small world. There is number 7 of the Norfolk Tides, Nate McLouth, who was born in Muskegon Mi and graduated from Whitehall High School. Click HERE to read more about Nate McLouth. 

In the end, the Charlotte Knights lost to the Norfolk Tides, 10 - 6.

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.
