I went for my first walk from my new abode today. I LOVE being back in Kingston…finally, and today was a perfect day. The sun was shining. The streets were lively with things going on. It was Kingston at it’s best and most summery.
On the edge of Skeleton Park.
Colborne Street. What an artistic way to pile your wood.
The Dip ‘n’ Strip is gone. It’s been around since before I moved out west, and that’s a long time.
This is Raymond Vos, from Gallery Raymond. He has run this business for a long time, and he has created this fabulous garden out back of his shop. He tells me that the hollyhock just came up through the stone on its own. It’s beautiful.
St. Andrew’s Church at Clergy and Princess.
This is a sad sign. Wallack’s is not doing inventory. Wallack’s is in financial trouble. An Ottawa Citizen article a couple of weeks ago said that they had gone bankrupt but had re-structured and were going to be back in business again. Wallack’s was the job I was working at when I left for Vancouver, and I have always popped in on visits back. I was looking forward to having it as my art store again. I hope they will open up again. We’ll see.
