I went walking around Downtown Petaluma recently. Petaluma is a city about an hour north of San Francisco. At one time it was known as the "Egg Capital of the World" and called Chickaluma. It had the only known Poultry drugstore and where the egg incubator was invented by Lyman Byce in 1879. It is now known for its historic downtown and laid-back vibes. The weather on the day I was there started out nice and sunny and then became cloudy and rainy as the day went on:
|Walking bridge over the Petaluma River|
|One of the old-style houses downtown|
|The Main Post Office-Built in 1933|
|The Original Petaluma Carnegie Library was built in the early 1900's. It now houses the Petaluma Museum|
If you are in the Bay Area, it is worth it to a trip to Petaluma and enjoy the day.
