Getting Lost is Fun!

A few weeks ago, I was driving through Colwood, realized that I needed to change direction so I pulled into a little strip mall that I’d bypassed for many years.   Instead of just driving away, I decided that it was time for me to visit here.  There are a number of businesses there, and two of them caught my attention.  Hmm .. there is an Afrikan Market .. must check this out!

Before I left this little plaza, I ventured into the second-hand shop and laughed when I saw these.  They might be considered antiques, but I remember them.  Am I an antique?  If so, then I am a most happy antique!!  🙂

I really had a lot of fun shopping at these two shops.  Enjoyed friendly conversation and was grateful that I had to make a turnaround in this mall.

On with this most sunny day!  Time to plant potatoes in chicken wire towers filled with straw!
