Spent a leisurely morning drinking coffee and reading the newspaper on Ron's front porch.

Driving back to Raleigh, we made a stop to tour the Mordecai House, the oldest home in Raleigh and the seat of one of the largest plantations during the 1800's. Home to five generations, the house features many of the Mordecai Family's original furnishings, portraits, and books. Two original outbuildings remain in the park- the overseer's cabin and the smoke-house. Other historical buildings have been moved into the park. Jan also took me on a driving tour of the historical mansion section of Raleigh including the governor's mansion.

Jan cooked a family dinner so I could meet and talk with Katrina and her family and Neil with his daughter Carter.

Its been fun catching up on your blog this morning. I'm hearing of severe thunderstorms in the south over the next couple days. Maybe nowhere close to you, but stay safe.

Glad you are still enjoying your trip and it looks like you've had nice weather. We're having rain all week here but it will bring May flowers (hopefully).

All this sitting on the porch or deck is making me jealous!!! It's gray and rainy here for the whole week according to the forecast.

I've read it all! Thanks! Especially liked the dogwoods and the seahorse. I'm eager to hear your dulcimer. Good for you!
