Day 137 - Mt. Airy, North Main Street

Elegant Living Quarters
I will admit that I wasted some time today before I did my walk.  I had the idea to drive to Woodbine and/or Lisbon, both of which are off the same exit on Rt. 70, but once I got there and drove for miles in each direction on Rt. 94, there just was not anywhere that inspired me.  I could not find a "town" with sidewalks in either location, but I did find a great farm called Larriland (for you, Norma!) that I will visit for sure in the spring and summer.  It is huge, with a beautiful large pond and acres of fields for their "pick-your-own" operation.

It smelled like bacon here!
I finally gave up and ended up in Mt. Airy, and this time I walked North Main Street.  I parked near a plumbing supply store and walked up the hill, finding some old Victorians high on hills above the street, an elementary school, a new middle school under construction, a meat store, and the fire department.  

Back in town, I window-shopped a little; then, on my way back to the car I looked into the windows of the old bank, where work is being done to renovate the old building.

There is still more of Mt. Airy to explore, but that will be for another day.
