The sunflowers at Dorothea Dix park are in full bloom! Come join me for a nice relaxing walk after work. We'll meet at 6:30 PM on Wednesday night in the Pullen Park parking lot. From there we'll walk along the Rocky Branch Trail, cross Western Boulevard and continue for a couple of miles along the creek, reach the historic Mount Hope Cemetery, see the downtown Raleigh skyline, and then head back to Dorothea Dix Park. Wear your nice summer clothes, because you're going to have a selfie of your life with the beautiful sunflowers. The greenway is paved, wear comfortable walking shoes, and bring some water. The overall distance will be about 4 miles. We'll be back to Pullen Park by 8:30PM, so you can still take a ride on the 19th century carousel.
We will meet at the Walmart in Garner at Exit 309 at 7AM SHARP. We will carpool and drive to Ft. Fisher State Recreation Area. We will do a short hike then enjoy a day of fun in the sun. Pack games for the beach. Beach ball, Frisbee, bochee Ball, volleyball, etc. Towel, sunscreen, chair, change of clothes, hat, sun shelter, lunch, snacks, lots of drinks, boogie board, and whatever else makes you happy. We will go down the coast to get away from the crowds. ADULTS ONLY AND NO PETS. We will leave around 4pm and go have ice cream before heading back to Garner.
