Downtown Yuma

We love biking to Old Town Yuma. 
To some it may seem like a dying spot...



But if you dig deep...
you can find a treasure chest of:
 unique stores
 antique stores
cool eating places
artists...
the list goes one!

  4. I like the pattern of the scroll work on the entry gate and what a lovely reflection in the third shot!
    I would rather see old storefronts in need of a little paint than shiny new glass storefronts. :)

  13. Flora if there are treasures to find, you will find them. A treasure attracts those who seek it. I love your photos, where are the tumbleweeds? lol Just kidding.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  15. Thank goodness we still have these older parts of cities and towns where people are making an effort to attract visitors and shoppers. So much more interesting than malls and shopping strips. The old wrought iron storefront gates are real architectural treasures.
