Day #9, #11, #12, #13, #14, #15: a photo story
Friday night we decided to do our holiday shopping in order to avoid the Saturday crowds. It’s looking a lot like Christmas and I have the photos to prove it. Here we go:
As we were out and about (9) doing our shopping we couldn’t help but be dazzled by the downtown decorations. I especially loved the star lights (13) gracing the street lights like a cheery holiday halo. Stepping into the local street mall (much nicer than the BIG mall} we decided to dine at the local Italian restaurant, along with everyone else. The half hour wait for a table went fairly fast by walking around oohing and aahing over the Christmas decorations. I adore the humongous tree, all green (14) and full of lights (13). Even though Santa was there, attended by an elf (rather a tall one) I liked the jolly wooden statue guarding the presents under (10) the tree. After dinner we walked around outdoors (15) and window shopped since many of the stores were closed. I discovered a sweet (11) necklace, which I would gladly enjoy finding wrapped under our own tree. Although I didn’t find everything on my list I decided the night ended well because out last window display was filled with butterflies! Who wouldn’t love butterflies flitting about in December? For a moment a drowsy bit of summer filled the moment.
