You know how on a group bike ride it is not possible to stop for photos of your choice, but I did get a few on the way to and from the ride start, and one at a midway stop at the park.

There is this local Ivars company — Chowder from company to shelf to your home ;’-)

Around the corner was a delivery for or from the warehouse.

One of several Pacific Seafood trucks nearby.

A close up of the center picture on the truck.

Riding along I came upon this item from Olive Garden. I moved it out of the bike lane and onto the sidewalk to keep it from being a hazard and, since there was no place to dispose of it, I returned the lid and put it to the side of the sidewalk.

I think we can call this one “one for the road’.

Always on the lookout for one of these…

All five of us bought a Fresh Squeezed (!!!!) lemonade and one or two added a cookie. I think we were their windfall for the day. I asked what they would do with the money they earned. They shrugged and said they didn’t know.

    Wow, Olive Garden and the food is still in there!
    Wasn’t there a lady tourist who would find food like that and would make a meal of it?
    I found an unopened can of black beans along the road (yet to be pictured) and left it there!!
    (Its near the pipe wrench, Bob, if you are interested. 🙂 JK!!)
    Nice finds Nancy, especially the OG!

    I was rather surprised to find that OG food. It did not look good on the lid when I opened it so am not how edible it was.

    Your fish pic captured the animal, the processing and the product, so well done! The setting for that lemonade stand looks lush and gorgeous and good to see kids still do lemonade stands.

    Excellent, Nancy. Not only do I love clam chowder, seafood, root beer and lemonade stands, but your post has exactly the kind of local food pictures I was looking for. Thank you.

      So glad I have met your expectations. It was fun to be aware for these things and to share.

    Wow, all that seafood! Here in landlocked Bavaria fresh fish is a treat. And kids selling lemonade, love that!
