Chapel Hill

August 20, 2007

We just spent two wonderful weeks exploring the Chapel Hill area and falling in love with it! Adam was selected to participate in a year long fellowship in Faculty Development at Chapel Hill which means we will be returning several times in the coming year. He is happy to be back in the student role and we all enjoyed being back in a university setting....the energy, the history, the diversity, the strong sense of community. It was also fun to tap into some family roots. My great-aunt (my namesake) was a well known professor in the Speech Department and my great-great aunt was the founder of the School of Public Health at Chapel Hill. The campus is beautiful with lots of large trees, trails, and big areas for picnics (and running).

The kids and I stayed busy each day by exploring the campus (including the planetarium), walking around town, and checking out local museums.

And did I mention the amazing Weaver Street Market? More than just a grocery store, it's a real community spot...every grocery store should have local produce, a big lawn for live music and dancing,Sunday brunch and lots of new friends. A big thank you to Leslie and Trent for all of the great tips on local places and for the great fiesta.

I did not realize all your family ties to Chapel Hill. Sounds like a wonderful community full of lots of exciting and interesting places and people. We were only there once many years ago, but I remember thinking it was scenic and charming.
Love, Mom
