Durham

{Urban Beekeeping & Other Newlywed Endeavors}

From Nashville we crossed the Great Smokies and descended into the buzzing green canopy of North Carolina, where we met up with the Cowgirl Bride and her huz in their new digs in Durham. Our time with them included a crash course in beekeeping, picking misshapen produce from their garden and exploring the newly revamped tobacco campus in old Durham. Which is a marvelous feat of tasteful urban renewal.












In other news, our flight to Delhi leaves tonight. Hopefully with us on it- I just barely finished my last commission this morning, but at least we're packed. I still have a few more posts from our Scamp road trip, and then, my friends, bigBANG will be featuring heavy doses of elephants, monkeys, camel carts, and curry.

India, here we come.

  1. I'm glad you enjoyed Durham! I grew up in Raleigh, so it's exciting to see how Durham is growing and changing. And I should also add that I have loved seeing photos from your road trip. It's been so fun to live vicariously through them.
