an evening walk

This is a photo of the old town hall in our town. It was taken around 1900. 

Here it is now. This photo was taken last night
 That's Kane and I on our evening walk. Pretty little town, isn't it.

I'll show you the route along the Mississippi River we take to get to this bridge.

And here we are back at the main bridge.

You really should visit Carleton Place sometime.

The day wasn't over until I found a Cat in Window for you.
Then home for tea.

hugs, Deb


  1. What a delightful stroll..
    the weather was perfect!
    the pace..just right..
    to stop.. Look..listen..
    drinking in the nostalgia..
    while remaining..
    firmly in the here and now.
    and to see a pay telephone booth!
