搬家前最後一個輕旅行!繼上次去Glenstone愛上Thomas Phifer的建築後,一直想看更多他的作品,而北卡美術館是離家最近的點。(Glenstone真的徹底把我洗腦)

Last staycation before we leave Virginia! Ever since my visit to Glenstone, I fell in love with Thomas Phifer’s architecture and wanted to see more of his projects. The closest place is North Carolina. 

和UN看展就是好玩,雖然每次說對當代藝術沒興趣,但專人解說時卻能提問題打破整團安靜到不行的氣氛。

UN is fun to go to museum with. Even though he’s not interested in modern art, but he raises thought-provoking questions during the guided tour.

北卡真的好熱,原先計畫看完外面每件作品,但悶熱天氣讓我們只想坐下來吃冰。結果我們就找到鮮芋仙!

North Carolina is extremely HOT! Any outdoor activities that we had planned was scratched, and we searched for any shaved ice place instead. Thank God we found Meet Fresh here in Chapel Hill! What a surprise! 

First and Finest | 全美最老的海軍醫院

Naval Medical Center Portsmouth is the oldest US Navy hospital, its original structure from the 19th century is preserved to this date! Our tour guide never served in the armed forces, but is extremely passionate and knowledgeable about history of this hospital. He gives free tours to give back to those who serve. A historical hospital tour is not complete without haunted stories. But why is everyone else laughing? 😱😨😰

美國海軍最老的醫院(Naval Medical Center Portsmouth),保有十九世紀剛建好的樣貌。帶我們的爺爺雖然不曾從軍,但對醫院歷史很有興趣,也想回饋美國軍人們,所以爺爺不定時會有導覽。爺爺在導覽最後以鬼故做結尾,但我也不知道哪個點大家聽完笑到不行,害我超毛!

為了答謝UN平時幫我拍好多好看照片,我決定在UN生日這天回報他!拿出野餐籃、蛋糕架、三腳架,準備時我快被自己的點子笑傻!但不改我的個性,還是要整一下UN。故意買全素杯子蛋糕和有奶蛋的蛋糕,想測試UN能不能嚐出來。好吧,味道還是有點不一樣。

UN,祝您生日快樂!

To properly show my appreciation for UN’s role as my personal photographer, I’ve decided to reward him with picnic on the beach for his birthday! I prepared picnic basket, cake stand, tripod, three essentials for beach picnic, lol 

But a birthday celebration can’t be that simple. I bought UN a mixture of vegan and regular cupcakes, to test if UN is able to tell the difference. Turns out they do taste different. Experiment fail. Until next time.

HBD, UN!
