Yesterday my sister, our friend Emily and I went out for a girl's day out. We found ourselves in Downtown Knoxville, TN. There we treated ourselves to loose leaf tea at The Remedy Coffee shop and browsed all of the eclectic, delightfully overpriced shops. Design stores, boutiques and pubs are around nearly every corner and around us people were scurrying to prepare for the art walk to take place that evening.
Downtown is literally ten minutes away from where I live but sadly, I never visit there. So, I allowed myself to behave like an out-of-town tourist taking pictures of everything that tickled my fancy.
This is an old train station that you'll find off the bridge on S. Gay Street. I am a lover of anything and anyone who tells a good story. I believe it's a lot of my grandfather in me. Anyway, as such, this train station captured my imagination as I tried to picture the many people who traveled via this station back in the day when that was the quickest form of transportation.
I imagine that no one "ever met a stranger"....
I simply *heart* Downtown and have purposed to visit more often and hopefully become a regular ol' native.
