North Carolina State Capitol
House chamber
After Savannah we had a long drive to near Raleigh NC where we spent a week.  We visited the state Capitol in Raleigh which was completed in 1840.  The only civic function of the building now is the office of the governor and lieutenant governor.  The building was restored to its 1840-1865 appearance during the 1990's.  They did a great job in each room making it very interesting to walk around and see how the building was used in those years.

Senate chamber
We drove over to Durham and had lunch with a former colleague of Ann's at a restaurant that overlooks the Durham Bulls ball park, the same park where the movie Bull Durham was filmed.  We then drove around the campus of Duke University.  It is a beautiful campus even on a cloudy, gloomy day.
