Today I ventured out for a walk into town. I had a very important parcel to mail and the weather was gorgeous, so I put on my running shoes, grabbed my purse and my camera and headed off. I thought you all might enjoy a little trip through my neighbourhood and into town.
It was so nice to finally see some colour breaking through the dry ground and dead grass in some of the neighbours’ yards.
Here’s a look up my street from the bottom. You can’t see my house because it’s around the bend to the right way at the top of the street.
The favoured destination of many a Canadian – Tim Horton’s. Here you can get what some think is the best coffee anywhere and their donuts, muffins and bagels are pretty good too. There’s a “Timmies” just about every mile you go in the city! My usual fare is either a steeped tea and a banana nut muffin, or a black coffee with a multigrain bagel – lightly toasted and spread with lite strawberry cream cheese (easy on the cheese). Surprisingly, although this TH is just down the road, we mostly hit the other ones around town when we’re on the go.
Around the corner a ways, you’ll find this combination of “services”. I find it a tad ironic.
I couldn’t resist this shot, because the empty billboard reminded me of a jail-cell. Juxtaposed with the wedding attire, it was too good to miss!
I’m so glad those days are over! (I’d be a little uncomfortable with an orthodontist by this name, wouldn’t you?)
If I ever decide to get a tattoo, you’ll be the first to know! What would you have as a tattoo? I think I’d go for a Celtic Cross (tiny) or maybe “Kat” in a Gaelic font. What do you think?
“Mummy, I lost my dummy!”
Here’s where I mailed my package. They tried to upsell me to a pack of stamps or some Olympic coins, but I wasn’t buyin’ them.
Here’s one for “Sparky” and any other of you bike fans.
A few of my neighbours lost their heads.
Who do we have here in the window?
Donkey day is coming June 14th. Hooray! I love donkeys!
Duke Street – funky shops and a vegetarian cafe. My mom lives in behind at “The Regency” – swanky name, huh?
This street is packed with churches. I’m just around the corner from “The Regency” now.
Here’s the local courthouse across from Mom’s building. See that car on the right? If you kept going in the same direction for about 3 minutes, you’d be back at my street again.
Thanks for tagging along!
