Picture of the Week ~ Beautiful Weekend in Downtown Raleigh!

View of Peace Street / Blount Street area of downtown Raleigh

I snapped this week’s photo on Sunday. The weather this past weekend was incredibly warm for this time of year making it the perfect time to explorer downtown Raleigh. Of course the beautiful weekend already feels like a distant memory in light of the dreary cold wet weather we have today. So I like to look at this picture to remind myself that the weather in Triangle is full of surprises and there is always hope for a warmer day to enjoy from time to time even during winter.

The picture above was taken from the Archdale building overlooking the Peace Street & Blount Street intersection of downtown Raleigh. There has been a lot of work going on in that area in recent years with sections being cleared and historic homes being moved to new locations. I hope to take another picture from this perspective a year from now for comparison and see what has changed over the course of a year.
