The neighborhood yard sale was this morning, and dear husband and I (after our rather crazy week) felt the need of a walk in peace and quiet so we went to Ayr Mount (An 1815, restored home with 265 acres along the Eno River in Hillsborough). We spent most of the time talking so we didn't take many pictures, but here are today's pictures and some pictures from a hike there a month ago.
