On the same day on the same side of the tracks, Eddie and I witnessed:
A beautiful garden (where Eddie got attacked by a bug--still pretty)
A possibly homeless man dodging in and out of traffic of four lanes to get to and from a gas station for no apparent reason
Three options for walking tours, shopping, historic, and by the water (it got too hot to walk them all, but we did some walking)
A drugged out woman, possibly a prostitute, waiting for her dealer
Yummy Italian food
An older woman in a fashionable outfit sitting on the corner of a sidewalk, on the curb, her feet in the street, smoking a cigar
Eddie and I hit the highway to hike a town over to get some Sonic to figure out what kind of town we'd just been in.
