The parking lot at the Turkey Hill Experience was crowded; no doubt, visitors succumbed to the air-conditioned home of ice-cream making magic. Meanwhile street traffic in Columbia and Marietta in the sweltering heat of the high temperature hours, not many people were in the streets or the sidewalks. Those who we did see were riding bicycles along Marietta’s Front Street. Today’s sojourn did not take in the River Park in either town.
Probably a bit of both, we ambled the main streets and several side streets and spied these scenes.
In Columbia, trolley stop signs have sprung up around town. This one is in the 400 block of Locust Street.
And next to a gallery venue.
And right across the street from an establishment with one of many “border town-like” flashing signs. The same signs that are forbidden by the town’s codes.
And then, the trolley came by …with only a couple of riders on it.
Marietta, as Wrightsville, uses the signage that says it is the state law to yield to pedestrians in designated crosswalks. “When traffic-control signals are not in place or not in operation, the driver of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within any marked crosswalk or within any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection.” – Pennsylvania statute
Shopped at The Mayfly, 8 South Third Street, Columbia to look about and cool off. Bought a few gifts – Columbia-emblazoned goblets.
– more scenes seen to come in a day or two –
