Chapel Thrill

Scott and I were finally able to make the trip back to Chapel Hill this weekend for a football game - UNC-Wake Forest. He has coached girls basketball for the past few years, and we haven't been able to get away in the fall before. It was a whirlwind weekend, but we had a great time seeing Dad and Judy and Amanda and Robert Stinnett. I was also happy to leave my "big" camera and laptop at home to take a break. So these pics are with my trusty simple Nikon point-and-shoot camera.

We left after work Friday and arrived in Raleigh about midnight. Luckily the game on Saturday was at 3:30 pm, so we had a little time to sleep in. It turned out to be a great game, and we also had fun hanging out on Franklin Street after. The funny thing was that it didn't get crowded until we were heading to the hotel around midnight. I should remember that college kids go out late. The street was full of college students in costume and a plethora of college girls wearing skinny jeans and tall riding boots. As we took our old selves home we laughed about the good ole carefree days spent in Chapel Hill. I miss it, but I'm glad to be a "grown-up" too.

 I had to take a picture of Carroll Hall - home of the journalism school - as we walked through campus.

 .........and a couple of the Bell Tower..................

Notice the season ticket holder taking a nap behind us. Too much fun too early for him.

We also got to see some fall colors, but I only managed to get a picture of it from the air leaving Raleigh.


  1. Glad you had a good time, sorry I missed it!

  2. What a great time!!! Even if I did majorly pay for it the next day. Ugh. Not a college student anymore - that's fo' sho!
