Wordless Wednesday | Vernon's Grocery Store, Hope Town, Bahamas



Wordless Wednesday is supposed to be about posting a photo(s) without any words. But, I'm a rule breaker, so here are a few words:

1 - One of the highlights of exploring Hope Town in the Bahamas is a visit to Vernon's grocery store. It's well known for its baked good and its proprietor, Vernon. Vernon is a direct descendant of the original founder of Hope Town. In addition to running the store, Vernon is also a minister at the local Methodist church.

2 - Vernon has inspirational and amusing quotes scribbled on index cards and scraps of paper scattered around the store. Quotes like, "Some days you're the pigeon, some days you're the statue."

3 - This is a picture of the kitchen outside of the store. They make fabulous bread, as well as their famous key lime pie.

   
What words does this picture(s) bring to your mind when you look at it?

  10. It looks like a genuine place, a real restaurant. Not the big, shiny, superfluous kitchens.

  11. That quote is awesome, Ellen. I am going to try to remember it and when I have days I feel like I am the statue, I will hopefully crack a smile thinking back at Vernon's quote. :-)
