Interested in viewing the paintings and photography inspired by the Blue Horse Gallery's Brittany and Lore Valley artist trip currently showing, the walls were impressively covered in scenes from the French country side, cafes, shops and more. Reminiscent of my own travels in and around Paris, I thoroughly enjoyed flipping through the big travelers' group album stuffed full with their photos and momento from their trip to France.
After meandering through some of the other galleries on the main and second floors in the Bay Street Village building, somehow we ended up going down a dimly lit, back stairway and heading down a long hallway that finally led us to an exit. I could not resist snapping these pictures of the very cleary marked "Fire Lane No Storage" signs brightly spray painted onto the walls in this hallway, and of all the stuff stacked and stored along its sides - just under those "Fire Lane No Storage" signs.
Not sure where we would end up as we passed through the door under that exit sign, surprisingly we were right back in the center of the main lobby of Bay Street Village!
Tonight's movie, "Into the Wild", a very well directed movie by Sean Penn, was based on a true story and the book by the same name, which I had read a number of years ago. A touching story, a young man eventually comes to the tragic realization that "happiness is only real when shared" (words, I feel, worthy of my ponder).
