52 Photos Project: Where We Meet

52 Photos Project

The prompt for Week 3 of the 52 Photos Project is Where We Meet.  I chose one of the regular places that Sue and I meet when we walk, the South Store Cafe.

The South Store Cafe opened in 1903 as a general store and it remains a community gathering place and restaurant.  It was named to differentiate it from the North Store located about a mile north.  The North Store is still where it always was, only now it has been renamed.  It still does business as a general store, while the South Store has become a gathering place and a restaurant.  Sue and I like to have a bowl of oatmeal there before we start our Friday morning walks.  It's a nice way to start the day.  Sometimes when I'm feeling energetic, I'll take a good book with me and enjoy a bowl of oatmeal on my own.

The dining room is cozy with antique furnishings.  There is a pellet-burning stove that warms things up during our cold wet winters with a comfy couch and chairs, along with the local newspapers.  We are very fortunate to have this place in our small community of Scholls.  There is a brief history of the South Store Cafe here.

We're planning a trip up the coast this summer and I bookmarked the page for this little cafe. Great photo too.
