Isn't it strange how you can live in a town almost all of your life, and still walk down bits of street that you have never, ever seen before. Or maybe you have seen them, but they were not the same. Maybe it was winter, and raining so that all you saw was the pavement; or it was two years ago when the blackberries had grown up over the house like something out of a Tom Robbins novel. Maybe you drove or walked right by this particular spot, but your mind was thinking of taxes, or dinner, in which case it really doesn't count.
In any case I drove by a particular bit of street that I had simply never seen before, and later that evening I made sure that our after dinner walk took us to just that spot.
I had to show you this practically perfect little building.It is the most perfect shade of robin's egg blue. I know, because on the way home my daughter found half of a robin's egg, and it was just that same color.
It turned out, that there were some other treasures, as well, like this strangely surreal little site.
It is good to know that even your own hometown can still surprise you.
