Celebration VII - Bloom Street






1) A few of the shops on Bloom Street, Celebration, Florida.
2) Old English phone booth, decorating the outside of Sherlock's Of Celebration. Sherlock's serves soups, salads, sandwiches, and more.
3) Downeast, an Orvis Dealer, perfect for the outdoor enthusiast.
4) A refreshing nap on a breezy afternoon in sunny Celebration.

Both Sherlock's bubbles contain actual quotes from Sherlock Holmes novels.

Neat street, Sherlock. :) And WHAT is that kid wearing? >8@

(Charcoal chutes, eh? The sidewalks must've been a mess on delivery days.)

Southern: LOL, I'll shop with you ... you bring the cash, I'll bring the list! This will be the last snow storm of the year for Memphis.

Annie: I will NEVER TELL!! j/k, I already did. Thanks for the compliment.

Fénix: Thanks, Watson. He is wearing the strangest get-up I've seen lately! It looked more like rags than clothes!

Re: Chutes. I can't remember the mess it caused, I just remember the coal sliding down the chute. It was pretty cool!

I think one of my neighbor's parents live in Celebration. I'm going to have to remember to ask them.

re: the geese. . .They are around here all year, although they tend to stay near the "lake" in our subdivision most of the time. However, when the pasture behind us floods, they join the cows.

George Townboy said...

Chris: Oh, oh! If that's her father reading the newspaper, tell her I'm just having fun, not making fun!

re: the geese ... the reason I asked is I had a flock of domesticated geese at one time - two males and eleven females. It was interesting!

Jim said...

George Townboy said...

Jim: Thank you! I appreciate that.

Hahaha. Loving the Sherlock Holmes balloons! It's always fun dropping by your blog.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and for the birthday wishes. I am very touched by your thoughtfulness. Sorry for the late reply - as I spent my birthday and the day after painting our new home and didn't come home until past midnight.
