Fresh Acres Market in the Sixteen Acres section of Springfield is geared up and ready for the season.
Fresh Acres is a concept store owned by Big Y, two years in the making. Fresh and all natural food is the main emphasis, with organic food also strongly represented. It has a neat, wide open produce section at the entrance, wide open meaning no doors to pass through.
I had to start work earlier than usual this morning, but it gave me a chance to see the sunrise, probably the last one for a while, as a cool, cloudy, wet weather pattern is supposed to sit on us for the next few days. Still pretty though.
This train came barrelling at me as I waited at a stop light on a bridge. There's something about trains that still mesmerise me. (Sorry, no sound, you'll have to imagine the rumble).
It'd be nice if we 'regressed' a bit and there were more trains hauling stuff and people, and less trucks and cars on the road. I suppose that wouldn't be too practical with today's 'gimme now/gimme quick' mentality.
I guess that's why there's something to be said for the Pedal People.
