Fun in the old part of town

I packed a lunch, along with a small table, a couple of chairs and a bottle of essential oil spray, and headed across town to a historical street. In the early 1900s there was a trolley line that ran down the middle of the street connecting this first subdivision with downtown. The trolley is long gone, replaced with a wide swath of grass which provided a spot for lunch with a friend who works only a few blocks away.

After our sandwiches, we took off for a two mile walk along this historic avenue where large homes are found. Most of the homes have been owned by the famous city members.

Here is my friend Delores at the beginning of the street. You can see where the streetcar ran down the middle of this broad avenue.

She had to return to work; I got to return home and do laundry.

  3. It’s always so wonderful to connect with a friend and spend quality time together. I made plans too for retirement and are doing something totally different.
