We went to a wedding on Saturday, so I prepared this post Saturday morning. I took all the photos from my car when I drove through town earlier in the week. Don't worry I was either stopped at the lights, or stopped for turning traffic when I took each one. None are particularly interesting but I did include a couple of facts with some of them.
Giant Tiger is a Canadian firm sort of like a grocery store, that also sells clothes, and house wares, a bit of everything. We had a smaller one in town, but they moved to this new premises which is a lot, lot bigger. It was where the old Zellers used to be. Haven't been in it yet, as I couldn't be bothered to go in. I went to the store to the right of it Mark's Work Wearhouse to get dh a new dress shirt for the wedding. They sell the best shirts there.
The town Alliston has adopted a phrase called "RURBAN," a cross between Urban and Rural. I get it, we are a bit of both. It was a small farming town with limited other industries until a Honda Plant came into town in 1989. It has since expanded at a rapid rate.
I took this photo to illustrate how dismal it looks this time of year with no green in the grass or on the trees. I call this "the dirty time of year." Once Spring is in full flow, things look prettier.
I love this store in the middle of town it has a bit of everything for the house. We got our end tables for the living room for there. Once I save up enough money I'll be buying more things from them.
If you look in the distance you can see a church steeple?
Here is that church closer up. It's St. John's United Church I couldn't find a definitive age of when this church was built.
All in all not overly exciting but if you click on the links it may be more interesting for you.
Just a look at the town in which we live.
