Enjoying a hammock on the Little Sugar Creek Greenway with Uptown Charlotte in the background Look closely and you will find a hammock in this photo. Also, the Uptown Skyline is in the background. We enjoy long walks on the Little Sugar Creek Greenway while someone appears to enjoys long naps in a hammock.

train

train in Freedom Park Continuing a transportation theme, we are sharing this photo of the train at Freedom Park near Uptown Charlotte. We enjoy watching children play on this train when we visit the park. Our grandson plays on it regularly. A plaque says the train was built in 1920 and when retied was one of the last steam locomotives in regular service.
