I did not meet Barbara & Jim Duffy, but I understand Barbara is Dad’s cousin.

The next shot here is our hike today. They are called Greenways here in North Carolina. It is a beautifully wide paved hike along a river. Clarks Creek Greenway is off of Mallard Creek Road. It was icy, even I was slippy around. But it was pretty.


I also was able to meet cousin, Kathy! She flew in from Ohio. I do not think it was to meet me, but I did enjoy her company.

Here I am fishing in a lake at another great hike in Charlotte, Reedy Creek Nature Preserve. The cranes were hanging out in a pond in the neighborhood, Highland Creek. Can you believe I found a bottle for recycling? Here is where we stayed for several days.
