Duck Days

The migrating ducks are back at the lake along with the regulars.

Ruddy Ducks,

our ever present Mallards,

and a lone Cormorant.

Theme Day: Local History

Oberlin Rising.
The installation is new, but it is a monument to the history of Oberlin Village, one of a small number of freedmen's villages near Raleigh
(See here for a timeline. )  Today Oberlin village is close to the heart of Raleigh itself and is in transision as gentrification takes over.

The community is still strong and holding on to their history.

Mr. Skelly

Either he's a left-over from Halloween, or he's been waiting in the car for a long time.

I usually avoid squirrel pictures, there are just too many.  But this guy was posing for me.

This mural sits on the wall of a tattoo parlor.
If their work is this beautiful, I might be tempted...?
