At the Main Street Galleria Soda Fountain......lots of history......cute place.
Delicous phosphates - this one is Green River (lemon-limey like Sprite). We also tried a real Cherry Coke and of course, Root Beer.
Caroline and Carter. Little ones stayed home with Blake.
St. George Hotel.....another haunted site!
One of the highlights....a darling candle store called 5B & Company.
Such great design and lovely flavors. You can see famous Floyd, the resident doggie, peaking out from beind the counter.
A couple of memorable scents:
The artwork Caroline and I tried very hard to purchase. Not for sale. It's a gem, though.
My selections - including tomato basil, handyman, fig, rosemary, patchouli rain and my grandmother's daughter.
Couldn't have been a better day. Caroline with us and a new town to discover. Loved it!
