Over the weekend, we wandered around warm and sunny Wilmington and took in all the things we like--and wondered what happened to the candy store we liked so much. The economy seems to have caught up with it. There were a few empty shopfronts that left us feeling sad for this lovely town. Seems the economy is eating holes into life everywhere. Still, though, the day was beautiful and full of fun.

  3. Ah, yes! Same here in Seattle, so many closed stores, so many homeless people on the streets and the crime rate soaring! But it looks as though you guys had a great day! And I hope you have a wonderful week as well, Sandy!

  5. It is fun seeing a warm sunny place instead of a snowy icy cold place you are normally showing. The new norm is much more fun.

  9. A nice day -- I love wandering like that; sure beats shopping at a horrid big-box store. Sadly, downtowns/old towns do seem to be the first to feel the pinch.
