Raleigh Trip 2015 | Day 3

May 3rd, 2015

Well it had to come to and end at sometime, and while it would have been nice to stay one more night, it was time to head back home.

Morning light on the way to breakfast.

Our 'dining' room for breakfast. (Each day we were in a different room.)

This time we had it made 'dairy free' my stomach was very thankful!

After breakfast we headed over to ‘The Sun Room’ to relax a little while before check out. (This room was occupied with bridal guests up until our final morning, so we took advantage or a few peaceful moments.)

Sit by the fire.

Or relax in this inviting little window area. (We did!)

After check out we snapped a picture of this bench. I image you could just sit here and just people watch as visitors walk around the village.

One more stop at The Goat to pick up some goodies for later.

Snapped a picture of their coffee grinding facilities located in the back seating area of The Goat.

… and then snapped a picture of a few of the belted goats on the way out of Fearrington Village.

Now onto the Sarah P. Duke Gardens… Most of my pictures in the gallery below are from the Asiatic Garden.

Can we say I loved that bridge? If you ever go to these gardens, make sure to wear flats as it’s 5 miles of walking trails.

Lots of people feeding the birds. Make sure to buy the approved feeding materials at the shops on the way in!

After all the ‘hiking’ around, we located the Terrace Cafe and picked up a sandwich to share.

Chicken roll-up sandwiches.

Time to head home now…

(Note: The Sara P. Duke Gardens themselves are free of charge, however parking is a dollar for every thirty minutes, so make sure to calculate your time properly and place the ticket where it can be seen in your car windshield.)

Until next time…
