My family and I were at Goat Lady Dairy in Grays Chapel, North Carolina recently for one of their extraordinary farm dinners, and we received a additional treat. While we were taking a short tour, two of the ladies of the farm, Lee and Regina, were tending to a pair of twin goat kids only minutes old.
I had to be in Chapel Hill to shoot a job (it's just a short drive through the country from my home), and on the way to lunch, we took a few moments to walk through the arboretum and the main quad at the University of North Carolina. UNC is one of the prettiest university campuses in the country and is especially so in the Spring. I thought the Japanese Maples and the Florida Azaleas were particularly nice. Oh to be an undergrad again!
