Charlotte Liberty Walk

Last week we did the Charlotte Liberty Walk, which is a 15 block journey back into time, through the center of our city. It was pretty cool! They give you a little brochure, and you go through and read markers which are placed on historic parts of downtown (such as where the courthouse was, the location of Thomas Polk's house, where British headquarters were, etc.) . We got to see a beautiful church and graveyard I'd never even seen before. I brought the camera and took a few pictures of our day. 

This was the place we took Easter pictures when I was little :P

Some of these graves dated back to before the Revolutionary War. It was amazing!

We passed a group of young musicians jamming at the corners of Trade and Tryon.

And a peach stand

the parking lot. I just liked the backs of the old buildings.

then we ate at the lovely Amelie's which you really have to go to if you're in the area! The place is un-describable, even hardly so with photos!
