Yesterday morning it was raining hard. But it was cool out. I borrowed my sisters umbrella and went outside, intending to walk only as far as the Park. But I got sidetracked a few times. I took photos of two brick houses on Church Street, which are across from the old Russell Langmaid School. Their design have always struck me as unique to this town. The owner of one of them happened to come along up the sidewalk and very politely asked me why I was taking photos of her house. So I told her about my blog. From there I walked towards Main Street, and attempted to photograph the empty houses at the corner. But the light was not good enough. (Though I did get a decent shot of Abigails house on Mill Street.) Being close by, I decided to explore the back of my old school. I discovered that the funny things I wrote on the bricks outside my grade six classroom were still there. I then retraced my steps back to Russelll Langmaid and stopped to take photos of the old Crab Apple Tree. I picked two nice looking apples, and bit into one. It was extremely sour, and almost beyond edible. Next door is a smallish building, that used to be a dentists office, which I have fond memories of. Lastly I photographed the old Robinson’s Pharmacy sign, which has hung there unbroken and not faded for a very long time. The owner of the pharmacy came out and spoke with me. He seemed like a pleasant man. On my way home I realized I will need to return to get photos of the old Post Office and the empty lot across from it. On my phone I received a text telling me that a big machine had arrived at Tannery Street and was smashing down the houses I took photos of just yesterday. I will go back tomorrow and take pictures, and say goodbye to the Maple Tree.
