A Fall day in Raleigh

Raleigh is non-stop fun in the Fall, it's crazy. The temperatures cool off in the zone I would described as perfect, and everyone frolics outside excessively. Here is a photo-tour of a fun Saturday in Raleigh including scenes from Cooke Street Carnival and a visit from Big Gay Ice Cream (originally from NYC!)

The Cooke Street Carnival mascot--the ever-classy pink flamingo

Local brews

Two guys launching their drone to take video of live music + crowd

Local cold brew coffee by Slingshot Coffee Co.

 Foraged walnuts from the Falling Fruit group in Raleigh

Hello my beauties! Delicious baked things from Boulted Bread. If grad school doesn't pan out, can I come work for ya'll??

Waiting in line for HOURS for Big Gay Ice Cream visiting us from NYC!

Creating their most popular cone, the Salty Pimp. Dulce de leche is injected into each cone by hand before getting a dunk in chocolate!

Long run haikus, a series

clatter of footsteps
sleepy eyes and stiff muscles
beautiful sunrise

neighborhood gawking
loop around the whole city
which way do we turn?

last few miles solo
make that Garmin beep again
you can do it legs
