I was headed to Aldrich’s for lunch when I passed this lovely young woman and her family. I was struck by the colored yarn she had braided into her dreadlocks. It turns out that she does that professionally. It shows.
She graciously let me make a photo of her. He baby didn’t seem interested in the whole process. Her guy headed to the store.
I made the photo because I liked the look of the aging mailboxes and the crooked line they make. Then I realized that mailboxes may someday disappear, a victim of electronic communications and privatized deliveries.
Not many places I know of have a working farm near the middle of the city. Collinwood Farm sits near the corner of F Street and San Juan Ave. The produce stand works as a self-serve grocery. There isn’t the kind of selection you’d expect in a grocery store as the produce is only what’s been picked on the farm. There is also some coffee from Port Townsend Coffee Company and some local jams and jellies.
