The therapy for leg, according to my doctor, is walk. I was feeling a bit of cabin fever, so that is what I did. As it turns out, it was a beautiful, not like winter at all, kind of day. I took a few pictures and I had a few musings on the town I live in. I have decided to share them with you. Hopefully, you find them entertaining and not annoying at all.
On what was once the main intersection in town, and now hopelessly crowded and lacking parking and foot traffic (just ask the first panhandler I have ever seen in town today if he was able to make any money) there is this fantastic mural. It celebrates Canada and our achievements. The building is a marketing company. I wonder if they need people for voice work?
The town of Aurora has many (some would argue too many) historical houses. They cannot be torn down, but sometimes they can be repurposed. This one was turned into an insurance agent. They did a nice job of landscaping and setting up parking. I don’t know if you can see it in this shot, but just to the left, they have charging stations for electric cars (yes, I said stations, plural).
Howard Johnson’s has been boarded up for quite a few years. With no buyer in sight, and little need for a motel or hotel except during the hockey tournament, this building will remain for a while. On a good note, it does not appear to be the home of squatters. I wonder if it would be possible to convert into condos or senior citizen care?
I guess someone thought it was okay to litter if you litter in just one small space.
So, that is my town. You haven’t seen the best or the worst. You’ve just been treated to some of the sights on the 5000 step journey I took on a beautiful afternoon in February.
