Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Store Displays

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Store Displays.

My plan was to go down to Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise, go for a coffee while waiting for the town to wake up and then go for a walk around town photographing some of the store displays that line parts of the sidewalk (pavement to the Brits).

Sunday morning produced a nice sunrise and a warm morning with a mix of sun and cloud. Ideal for a wander around town after a coffee and cinnamon raisin bagel.

This was the front of the Dollar Store when I first walked down the main street. Just a box of scarecrows on the sidewalk.

Meanwhile on the side of main street I was walking down I nearly got run down by a loaded trolley coming out of one of the stores. I stepped backwards out of the way just as the person pulling it looked behind. This is one of the later trolleys being brought out onto the sidewalk.

Walking back along main street there’s a lot more stuff cluttering up the sidewalk outside the Dollar Store. So much that one item is in front of the neighbouring business.

I’ve never seen scarecrows on sale before, that’s definitely a new one on me! I bet you never saw them over here either!
I am very impressed that you were up with the larks to take photos of displays, and I thought I was dedicated! 🙂

No, in fact it took me a few seconds to work out that they were scarecrows. My first thought was that it was awfully early for Halloween decorations to be on sale. I had got up for the sunrise and after the sunrise spent 45 minutes in the coffee shop waiting for the town to wake up.

Our Tim Hortons (a nationwide brand) is open 24 hours. The local grocery store (supermarket) was 24 hours for a while but is now 7 to midnight (or something like that). The area is a minor tourist destination but also on route to a ferry that runs in the summer. The ferry is a shortcut for people heading to northern Ontario or heading to western Canada.

Of course… supermarkets! Yes we have a number that open 24 hours, most close around 10:00 PM and open at 07:00 AM.

That’s something I never thought about. The Tim Hortons coffee shop is only a couple of hundred yards from the grocery store. There’s a small seating area in the grocery store where you can sit and eat. They prepare pizza, fried chicken and the like. You can buy a portion/slice and sit and eat it in the store.
