will wonders never cease?

gazebo in front of City Hall

a shop I have gotten a few cute things at

an old cafe that will soon open as an old fashioned Malt Shop!

it was way busier than this picture shows!

a gorgeous flowering tree of some kind!

OK guys, today I went for another outside morning walk! Yeah, it is still JUNE! I didn't think it would happen today, because the expected high is 93, but when I woke up, I checked the weather and it was still in the 60's and CLOUDY! A good combo for me indeed!
I headed out a little before 8 and went an entirely different route than usual. I usually walk through the scenic residential neighborhoods by my house, but today I headed in the opposite direction and started walking towards our little downtown area. It was a totally different world. Instead of the quiet, empty streets, there was hustle, bustle and people! Still heard the birds singing though, which I especially enjoy. I walked down to the end of Broad Street and back again and it was a good 57 minute walk. No hills, though, just some gradual inclines up Broad Street, but a lovely walk it was! I enjoy taking pictures during my walks because it distracts me from the time and makes it go by faster!


  1. When is the malt shop supposed to open? We will have to go there when we visit. Any good finds in Let There Be Light? I love all your pictures, I almost feel like I am on the walks with you, without the exercise.

  2. What a pretty town. It must be nice to live in a place where you can walk downtown and back.

  3. What a lovely gazebo. Someone had the right idea opening an old-fashioned malt shop. I'll bet it will become a town favorite very quickly.

  4. Nancy, I don't know when it is going to open, But the sign was up, so hopefully soon!
    Lanyard lady, shamefully, this was the first time i did that!
    OK Granny, I bet it sure will!

  5. Love the photos!! Looks like a great place to take a walk!! Good for you- not letting June stop you!

  6. It's a great idea to take photos on your walks. You exercise your body and your creativity! The next time I get to talk a walk with the boys, I am taking the camera.

    I hope the malt shop does well. That address can never seem to keep a restaurant. I wonder if the kitchen is bad or something.

  7. Laura, you should take pics on your walk for sure! Maybe you could make a "Gadsden in Pictures" calendar or something!
    I hope the Malt shop does well too!
