Main Street: Sumner Surprise
On a sunny day the parking lot at Whole Foods on a Friday morning can feel like Main Street. This little stud muffin had been rescued from a puppy mill by the Humane Society, who had parked outside Whole Foods with a glassed-in truck full of cats and bunnies and hamsters. Needless to say, they gathered quite a crowd.
This weekend we visited the tiny town of Sumner TWICE! What can I say? I love Main Streets. These photos of a cafe, florists, and a drugstore are actually on side streets from Sumner's Main Street. The Main Street itself boasts a bookstore, public restrooms, antique and cookery shops and, to my mind a necessity for an authentic mainstreet, a Salvation Army with everything 50% off.
The biggest surprise was one of the last remaining Red Apples: virtually hidden two blocks off Main Street and closed. I felt as though I'd journeyed to Mecca.
