In and Around Chapel Hill

From April 22 through May 12, 2014, we spent a delightful three weeks (well, minus one day) in our home in Chapel Hill. As always, such visits are a perfect opportunity to spend some time with family and friends, and we certainly did so. Still, I managed to take some photos, some of which are presented on this page. Most images are from Chapel Hill, though I've included some from surrounding areas.
