Back to Afton after a full week off! It felt good, and I felt a whole lot more energized once I got there than I do when I'm home during the week. I really need the activity to keep me sharp. The day began when Ron M. and I were driving through Chelsea on the way to Afton on Route 66 and saw two brand new painted billboards there! These are beautifully rendered and the "Welcome to Chelsea" one is such a great way for little Chelsea to jump feet first into taking advantage of its placement directly on the Mother Road. Illustrations on the sign are of various Chelsea landmarks, as well as the totem poles in Foyil. The other sign is on the fence next to the wonderful Chelsea Motor Inn, and will surely draw more folks into the immaculate little 6-room lodging. Both signs are very professionally designed and can't be missed when traveling west-to-east through town. I only wish they were as visible to those traveling east-to-west, because that's the direction most travelers take. Nevertheless, they're great!
