The Sunflowers At The Top Of The Hill

Yesterday morning I rode my bicycle in to town. Along the way I stopped to take some photos of storefronts, including, the fireworks store and the Comic Book store. (Which is owned by a gentleman named Todd, and is in the basement beneath the Pharmacist.) When I reached the coffee shop, I went inside and purchased a coffee, which I carried with me to the old Lawn Bowling Center. There I sat down and and drank it, while being very careful not to spill any on the ants. When I was done there, I walked across the street and took a photo of the Streetsville United Church, which I sent to a few friends.

I then rode my bike south on Queen Street, crossed, and took a short cut through the old Highschool. At the top of the hill that overlooks the Park, their was a group of sunflowers, that were too pretty not to admire. So I did. Every year they pop up in the exact same spot, along with some Tiger Lillies. I made my way to the park, and rode along the trail next to the river, and came out at Main Street. I crossed over the Bridge, and then turned right into the cemetery. Near my mother and fathers grave site, I noticed that someone had just been buried. Atop the mound of dirt were dozens of flower arrangements, which I took a photo of, just because of how interesting it looked.

When I left the cemetery, I decided I needed something new to explore, and so I made my way along the Culham Trail and rode all the way to Brittania Road. I then crossed over to the other side, and took the backstreets until I reached Ray Underhill Public School. I attended there for just one year, back in 1968, and yet, I seem to posses innumerable memories of it. I took photos of the front entrance, as well as the blue doors that I used to enter in and out of in the mornings and at recess, then rode through the playground and the field, and came out behind the Beer Store.

When I got to the gas station, I stopped to take a photo of the big ICE Box. The attendant came out and asked me why I was doing that. I told him no reason really, that I just like taking weird photos. Which, I think, satisfied him, though he seemed to back away from me slowly. Though maybe it was just my imagination.
