My pastry loving pal and I went to Magnolia today to walk and eat pastries at the Upper Crust Bakery; both were wonderful. Our 5.3 mile walk took us along streets between 32nd and 36th Avenues W from McGraw to Barrett.
This area is home to Pop Mounger Pool,
West Magnolia Playfield,
Magnolia Community Center which was quite busy today,
Catharine Blaine School,
Magnolia Branch of the Seattle Public Library,
Magnolia United Methodist Church and Discovery Montessori School
Magnolia United Church of Christ.
We went into a few shops and everyone was very friendly. We stopped to chat with an elderly gentleman who lovingly told us tales of his mother cooking three meals a day including baking biscuits every morning.
