Quiet night at RJR
Despite excessive heat (or perhaps just typical August weather), the blog judged Monday evening to be safe for walking and managed a respectable 4.2 miles in the Polo Road area between University Parkway and Cherry Street. This area of Winston-Salem is characterized by modest homes on extremely large lots and some apartments complexes. One can stand at the corner of Howell and Cherry Streets and gaze at the RJR cigarette factory. The pleasant aroma of tobacco wafted across the neighborhood in the steamy air of the quiet evening, but there was little evident manufacturing activity. The blog then poked around the streets off Polo Road and found a house for sale with a remarkable retaining wall.
