I have such fond memories of Charlotte, not least the Yves Delorme (formerly Palais Royal) outlet store at 311 East Main Street. I am still not over the fact that I did not buy that paprika colored French tablecloth when I was there the last time, during their Thanksgiving week clearance sale. ;-)

Enjoy yourself,
Merisi

I always take something positive away from your blog. Always the joy of your photographs. But today's were not just beauty, but a teaching moment to really look around me. No matter what town/city.

Great photos . I am a great fan of looking up as well, even though occasionally it means I almost walk into lamp-posts.

I love Charlottesville and your pictures are outstanding. I always think of The Waltons when I hear Charlottesville.

Those round topped windows could be in Saltaire.

It's a very pretty town -- and so much more that I missed. Bt I was in a hurry to get out to my sister-in-law's to visit with her, her husband and my niece and her husbands (coincidently, NCmountainwoman, they are the Waltons too!)

Merisi -- the paprika colored table cloth sounds, well, unforgettable. I still regret a little lapis hippopotamus I saw and didn't buy in Venice twenty something years ago.

Alas, no, I didn't ride the trolley bus, Maria Cecilia. I was on my way back to the hotel when I saw it.

Jennyfreckles --- you and Merisi have given me an increased appreciation for architecture.
