Thursdays are my day to volunteer in the pediatric playroom at the hospital. With it being summer, there's very few patients each week, so today I was able to leave early, which gave me the opportunity to do a bit of exploring around the area.
I first tried to visit the Maritime Museum but, even though it was opening hours, the front entrance was locked.
So I took a few pictures and then moseyed on over to the Modern Art Museum (in 115 degree heat, but thankfully it wasn't far).
A lovely lady named Fatima showed me around. I didn't take a lot of pictures but just enjoyed visiting a place that, in all these years of living here, I've never been to.
I love the style of the old buildings and wish people kept this way of living as it has so much more character than what we see being built today.
Really loved this peacock made from rusty gadgets.
Check out that tail.
Just across the parking lot, there was an old building that is apparently being renovated. The grounds were really dirty and smelly so I just took a few skyward shots.
It's my plan to make myself get out at least a couple of days per week to explore all the places I've not been to. Summer is a great time to do so since so many people have traveled, the roads aren't so crowded and places are nice and quiet.
Hope you have a great Thursday!
