Trip Report: Charlotte, North Carolina

Earlier this month, I went to Charlotte, North Carolina with Won’t Run.  It was my third trip to North Carolina, and my second trip to Charlotte, this year, so we decided not to stay downtown and not to go to all of the traditional sites.  We rented a car and did some exploring.

We had fun over the weekend.  We stiffed ourselves on lots of BBQ:

We walked around downtown Charlotte – Won’t Run had read about this shop where they made the best coffee in the world.  I don’t know if it was the best, but it was certainly the strongest coffee I’ve had in a long time.  Can you say Buzzzzzz?

This was a flea market we found – it was fun, but I’ve never seen so much junk in one big room!

This was the sunrise I saw on Monday morning as we were heading to the airport to catch a flight to Savannah:
