Route 66 (133/365)

TIME: 11:49 AM to 12:21 PM
PLACE: Route 66
SUBJECT: Sights

The girls and I drove to Litchfield for their Pickers Market. 

It was a bit hot for May – but I’ll take it over the cold any day.

We took the Historic Route 66 highway home.  The modern highway parallels the Historic Route 66 alignment (1940-1977) .  I pulled into a junction to take photos.

This is looking south to Staunton.

And looking north to Litchfield.

Soulsby’s Service Station in Mt. Olive. 

This was built in 1926.  Route 66 was to the west of the building at that time.  Then, in 1930, the highway was realigned and ended up in front of the station.

This gigantic rabbit was on the side of the building.

See all those bunny graves in the back? I can tell that they were loved.

It was a good Mother’s Day.

Stella and I did some shopping at the mall to pick out a dress for her to wear to the 8th grade dance next Friday.

Then we had dinner. 

She tried some Uni (sea urchin) this time – she has determined that she is not a fan of that particular item.

The birds have really been christening my car.

Maybe it’s because I park under a tree.

Time for a wash.

Our walking path at work rings around the pond in front of the office.

This is the first time I’ve seen a duck.  He’s been hanging out here several days now.

Here is an interesting tree root between the parking lots.

It looks like it was sprayed with orange paint so folks wouldn’t trip over it.

I can see a face in it.
