honeymoon: the arboretum

On Thursday we went to the NC Arboretum. This place is really amazing - 434 acres of land full of many conservation development projects and studies. They have permeable parking lots, 'green' roofs, and recycling systems for all their water - rain water too!

They offered segway tours of the who could pass that up?

We had about 45 minutes of videos and one-on-one instruction before the tour began. Learning to ride the segway was pretty easy. It's all based on your center of balance (your belly button). The segway takes about 100 reading per second and moves where your belly button moves. It's really easy once you get used to it.

This was a fun way to wrap up our nice and relaxing honeymoon. We'll definitely be back to visit again.
