|Scan from my sketchbook... It was a beautiful and blustery day...|
The streets were strangely deserted and many of the shops were closed. Someone talk me down and tell me the area leaps into action after 5 on a Friday. It was a little disconcerting especially on Black Friday. I worry that many of the businesses they are probably struggling. Hopefully they got a boost from small business Saturday today?
Covington is a really beautiful place with a lot of old buildings and cute shops. It seems like a lot of buildings are empty on Pike Street. I hope they can revitalize like the Gateway Quarter has but it is tough. The architecture is beautiful but renovation is very expensive and there are a lot of factors that make these areas living organisms.
We had a great Thanksgiving with a lot of food, wine and good conversation. I hope everyone reading this had a good holiday.
|I love this sign on Pike Street. It looks like something out of Game of Thrones...|
