Today my wife and I took in some free music in Carrboro at the Weaver Street Jazz & More Brunch. It was great sitting in the shade taking in some free tunes. They have free music every sunday in the summer from 11-1. Bring a blanket or chairs and relax. Afterwards we drove around the corner to West Franklin Street in Chapel Hill and took a stroll. Here are a few quick pictures from our trip in both areas. I really need to spend more time photographing Chapel Hill. I haven't even begun to explore it outside of the immediate area around West Franklin Street. Anyway, just wanted to share for those interested in catching a glimpse of what parts of it looks like. Enjoy!

Thanks NRG. Those are great pics. I think that parts of Chapel Hill are as pretty as anywhere in all of North Carolina. I especially love the neighborhoods around the secret fraternity Ghimgoul Castle. You should check those out sometime soon. And afterwards, grab a slice of pie at Pepper's on Franklin Street. The local scenery is quite nice as well.

They also havemusical performances on Thursday evenings. The front of Weaver Street market is packed pretty much every day. People will get a bottle of wine or some beer from the store, or some food, and dine or drink outside. There' also great ice cream at Maple View (local dairy) across the street. One block down there's Neal's Deli (houemade cornd beef and pastrami), Cliff's Meats (one of the few butchers still operating in the Triangle), and Open Eye Cafe (roasts their own beans, award winning baristas). Orange County Social Club and Southern Rail are two of the coolest places in the Triangle to have drinks. That little area of Carrboro is really neat.

NRG, nice pics! What are you shooting with? I got a Nikon D40x recently and was down at Weaver Street shooting a couple of weeks ago myself.

I have a basic point and shoot Sony DSC-W7 Cyber-shot. I hope to get a new and better camera one day. I hear the Nikon D40x takes nice pictures. I don't know too much about cameras though!
