As I showed you on Wednesday I did finally get a photo of a horse.
3 horses actually
This inspired me to take myself off to a neighboring town where there is a train station. And a movie theater! And across from the theater there is a church!
Plus the town itself changed hands so many times during the civil war there ought to be a plethora of historic landmarks to choose from!
And who knows? Perhaps I might stumble across someone dancing with an angel statue?
Stranger things have happened.
Though not to me.
First I checked the train schedule on line and showed up just before the commuter train came into the station.
I had hoped to get a shot of the engine but it blew by before I could and I hadn’t realized just how very long the commuter train actually was. The engine was well away and around the bend by the time it stopped. So I got this photo instead
Then I went over to the local coffee shop where I paid $5 for what amounted to 6 sips of coffee. This is my fault for ordering a cappuccino instead of a latte I think. When I gave up caffeine back in April 2011 I stopped ordering coffee when out because I am suspicious that they don’t always give me decaf, so I am out of practice on what to order.
After I drank my 6 sips and wiped the half a mug of foam off my face I headed down to the movie theater.
I had to cross Main Street. This is always a misery because of the traffic. I mean, just look at it
After a harrowing dash across all two lanes of traffic I made my way down to the theater
ParaNorman is playing.
Then I turned around and took a photo of this church.
After that I wandered in and out of the numerous junk-tique stores in town, hoping to find an angel statue knick knack. But there was no joy.
So I went after historic landmarks and found a few
These are a couple of the oldest buildings in tow. They are pre-Civil War.
Considering how many times this area was overrun by both Union & Confederate troops it’s a wonder anything remained standing.
Oh and there is this old sign that get’s it’s paint refreshed every year
On my way home I stopped by the lake and took this photo of a pier
This leaves me with a roadside stand (hopefully I’ll get this on Saturday), someone dancing (Mayhem has volunteered) and the elusive angel statue still to go in the next week.
