My World Tuesday: In the Detail

From Wilmington


Not until my visit in April did I notice that the Kenan Fountain on Market Street in Wilmington, North Carolina, is graced by turtles enjoying the shower. Being there in April makes it a lot easier to slow down and look around.  Cool, comfortable air sure does affect the perspective.  My daughter and I love Wilmington and ogle the same things every time we are there--like the Spanish moss on the trees in the churchyard of St. Paul's. We liked the art in the windows farther down Market Street near the river, too. These flip-flops have me counting the days to June 25, when we'll be in North Carolina again.

  5. I am not surprised that you found the turtles. I am a bit surprised that those flip flops didn't follow you home.
