Acorn in Moore Square
Reviewed 4 April 2017

It is an acorn. In a poorly-maintained city park. With homeless folks milling about. Did I mention the acorn?

It's a giant acorn and not much more. It's one of those that we visited just to say that we did. It's erected in a park in the middle of Raleigh just down the street from a homeless shelter, and is understandably a hangout for those whom have to vacate the premises during the day.

Nuts about this spot. Raleigh is the "City of Oaks". Acorns come from oaks. Good photo op. Nuff said.

Yes, it drops out of the sky every new years, but I suppose because its so approachable, so close to the ground, when I see it in Moore Square it always gives me a little happy smile. Hometown pride (or adopted hometown, anyway) has to be part of it, but its quite a sight.
