Our city is named after the famous and world renowned Sir Walter Raleigh and there is a statue of him near the city center. A couple of years ago I included a photo of him here but things have changed since then. Let’s just say his fashion sense has gotten a little more sophisticated. Only certain guys can pull this off.
He’s not dressed like this every day. Only certain times of the year when the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure takes place here. Of course he has to be dressed in pink. Anything else just wouldn’t be right. Now you know why I feel perfectly at home here – I’m not alone in my craziness. Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
From his pink hat adornment
to his pink boot decorations
and everything pink in between. He is trendy without being too over the top. (Okay, sure.)
Um-m-m. What is that on his boot?
Oh, it’s Sebastian!
He heard me say only certain guys can pull this off. Sebastian wants to know what you think. Is he one of those guys?
The ones who are comfortable enough in their own skin (or fur) to wear – not only pink – but a pink tutu?
Sebastian’s all about supporting the cause.
On this particular weekend Sir Walter and Sebastian are not the only things you will see sporting pink. Here and there you will find pink throughout the city like these lines in the middle of the road.
I wonder if we’d feel a little more buoyant in the winter if we looked down the street towards our capitol and saw these pink stripes. Could you help but smile?
The courthouse has pink ribbons and bows too.
The light covers along the sidewalks are pink as well. It looks like the whole of downtown might be awash in a pinkish glow.
One last look – it’s what all the statues will be wearing this Fall.
Have a happy and very pink weekend!
