Friday

All Things Farm and Garden
Inside is really old timey
small isles because the store is packed full of whatever you need.
Friendliest Folk Ever
There is a separate facility geared to send feed and supplies any where.

Across the street is the Market.
We are there so early, even the farmers aren't there . . . giggle
(Yellow Tape to keep announce it isn't open, yet.)
Looks like there's a job to be had.

Market Guardian

Elliot Chapel
Unitarian Universalist Church  

I was going to post a camp song . . . 
BUT - Yo-Yo Ma has just released his newest album

Six Evolutions - Bach: Cello Suite No. 3 in C Major
Yo-Yo Ma . . . Smiling for You.

Bandstand

A tiny bandstand built on the grassy strip between lanes in the road.
a block behind the stacked chairs
but, mostly overlooked.

Most Live Music is performed two blocks over.

And
Mersault making good use of a Bandstand - 
in the rain -

107and a half - Strange Donuts


Strange Donuts 
bottom of the door says "stay strange"
tiny place - very popular
that bench gets a lot of use
because only a few people can fit inside

Delivery vehicle
Fits the same amount of people

Olive Chapel

This little gem sits on a corner.  It's always well cared for and lovely.  

The congregation has been a might force for Good since before 1853.
This church house property was purchased in 1923.

Olive Chapel North-ish side

The property sits tight on a corner, with a curve road on it's North-ish side designed for traffic to by-pass the trains.

Front

There's a small home tucked towards the back, perhaps where pastor lives.
I've seen young people tending the grounds - which look charming all year.
Trying to show the front is a challenge.  So, I opted to tilt the camera and fit it in the frame.
