Spring in Carolina. Next to Autumn, this is probably my favorite time of year. The leaves and the grass have turned all shades of green. The skies are crisp blues…on a good day and there are plenty of those! Flowers start blooming. It’s just a beautiful season here in my part of the Carolinas – Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and surrounding communities, AKA The Triangle.

Today was one of those days. Highs in the 70s with a slight breeze, a bright blue sky and the perfect day for a walk along my favorite greeenway trail – The Neuse River Trail. My husband and I took our pooch for a walk along it earlier and then stopped off at one of the many roadside vendors you see during strawberry season in North Carolina. Below is a recap of our day in video –

There are some fabulous places to pick strawberries yourself or to just pick up a bucket. A great resource is NCStrawberry.com. They have everything from a Farm Locator to recipes! North Carolina Strawberries May 2014 Copyright Lisa Sullivan All Rights Reserved

For more information about the Neuse River Trail visit the City of Raleigh’s resource or an extensive one by an avid trail-lover from Wake Forest. You’ll see why the Neuse River Trail is my favorite trail in the Triangle!
