Exeter, Calif., Murals

Wonderful poppies graced the wall  of the little shop across the patio from the "Wild Flower Cafe".
"Rosemary and Thyme" is such a perfect name for this delightful store.

This mural was tucked between two stores on one of the main streets.

A tribute to all our military stood out in a parking lot. You feel as if the airplane is going to fly right off the wall.

There are many more murals and it was difficult to pick the ones to show you.. We did not find the brochure that shows all of the murals and their history.. Maybe next time I am in that area I will pick one up and do the walking tour as they suggest.

I found out today that the brochure can be found at the Mural Gallery and Gift Shop on Pine and E Streets.  This area is well worth the visit. It is hot in the summer, so I would suggest Spring or Fall for this trip.  I did pick up a Visitors Guide and in looking through that,  learned that Exeter has a wonderful celebration at Christmas time with Carriage Rides, Santa and the whole Christmas theme. That is really tempting.

For those of you that are not in the area or have never visited small towns, it is amazing what you will find in the local museums and history centers..
