Good morning. It's a bit cloudy this morning (only 7:30 a.m.) but it is still warm so we are having our coffee (and our breakfast) out on the porch. What a great way to start the day.
Yesterday Joe spent the day at the pool. He found a nice old gentleman with a checkers board, and they played for hours while us gals went to Old Town to look at rocks at the Black Market Minerals shop.
After leaving the rock shop, we wandered around Old Town to see all the other cool things it has to offer. This is Audrey and her friend trying to decide which shop to check out next.
This is a display of an old Chicago delivery truck. The older automobiles are very popular here in Old Town, as you can see by the "Dodge" bench. There were a few other "old car" benches.
I'm thinking that this fellow was probably caught snooping around where he did not belong, and was quickly apprehended and put out with the trash.
I love this old "Haunted" building. The architecture is simply fabulous. It makes me think that in its hey day, it was probably a fun place to live.
There was so much more fun stuff here in Old Town to see, and we managed to see most all of it. Our internet connection is not so speedy and it takes quite a while to upload the photos, so these will have to do for today.
When we left Old Town, we went in search of the local state park. It's a beautifully landscaped area with lots of trees, a lake and shady areas where you can sit and enjoy the sights. There are several piers that go out over the water, a lighthouse and lots of other places to stop and take some gorgeous photos. I'll have photos from the park tomorrow.
Today, we might just get to go up for a helicopter ride. The girls aren't interested, but Joe says he will go with me so that I can try it. So who knows? Maybe we'll go check it out later this morning. Well, that's about all the news for this morning. It's time for this old gal and her little dog to get dressed and go find some fabulous mischief to get into. So, till Sunday, Y'all be well and have a magnificent weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
