Historic Downtown

We went for a walk downtown last night and Michael captured the spirit of the place.

Yep.

Well, it wasn’t all that bad. There’s a bridal hire shop:

A historic eagle (the town was originally known as Eagle Rock):

A few back streets:

And a jewelers trying to cash in on the cupcake trend:

Well, that was our initial impression. As with many American towns, the centre of activity has been displaced by shopping malls. But the walking path along the river is gorgeous. And we also discovered a very nice bakery (not the best coffee but amazing cookies), a couple of great restaurants, and a handful of interesting shops, once you find the right street.
