Olde Towne Stoney Creek

This fountain has been 'down town' Stoney Creek for many years. It used to be plain, with out any statues, they were just added a few years ago. A funny local prank used to be to sneak there at night and pour laundry soap into the fountain. In the morning, King St. would be full of foam. I swear, the joke never got old, those zany kids and their pranks. Fortunately, or unfortunately, after the man and the eagle were installed, the foam party was no more.

Now people walk there to relax, chat, and watch the fountain. While I was there today, a few little girls were splashing around in the fountain. I was envious, I didn't think that it would be as cute if I did the same. Maybe one day..

You should get a coffee, or an ice cream, and take a walk around Olde Towne Stoney Creek, it's very charming. Here is a map of the downtown/fountain area.

The "Ivan Delicatessen" in the back, is an old Croatian bakery / travel agency. They sell great smoked ham and various imported European treats.

These roses smelled very nice. I broke a little flower off and took it home, then the guilt set in. I'm sorry downtown stoney creek...I regret stealing the flower.

Right behind the fountain is the Old Powerhouse Restaurant. It is gorgeous on the inside, and has a patio in the back that is surrounded with Weeping Willow trees. The only downside is the food, which for a restaurant - is quite the downside. The menu is very limited, and the food is overpriced. It is a nice place for some wine and pastries. It is also a nice place for a date.

These pics really make me miss home... although I will be seeing it this summer!

Is that old barbershop still there? Or even that tiny Chinese restaurant? Or have I been gone so long that they're no longer there :(
