In Strathcona, expect the unexpected.



Post #4 of Culture Crawl, 2009 series. (#1#2, #3)


I'm still working my way through the photos of the Culture Crawl a week ago. These are details noticed along the way; in Strathcona, even the ordinary folk have quirky ideas and don't mind sharing them:





Incense sticks in a holder on the front wall of a house





Christmas lights  in a box





Buddha among the rocks





Stained-glass fish in a window





So don't bother checking.





Snake on the front steps. Not poisonous, though.





Painted pink plug





Old pushbuttons, new paint job.





Greeter





Cosmic egg





Coffee and comfy chairs. At the Gem & I studio, a Crawl first-timer. Laurie bought a few stones here.





Inside the Gem & I, a worried guardian.





A pair of dogs on the street


This big white sheepdog reminded me of the garage sale dog I wished that I had bought in Campbell River. Just as bouncy, just as foolish. He was thrilled to have a friend to play with; he bounced and flopped about, grinning from ear to ear. We stood in the middle of the street and laughed out loud.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
