Happy Monday everyone and welcome to another walk around Coupeville. It was a beautiful morning and a great day to walk.
Down by the entrance to the Coupeville Wharf I spotted a new addition. Back in May of 2014 I took this picture of what I believed to be the last pay phone in Coupeville.
This morning I noticed that it was gone! Another piece of history bites the dust but…
Look what took it’s place:
That would be a “Little Free Library”, how cool is that? I think it’s a really good replacement and it looks great!
The old “Mad Crab” restaurant that was housed in the old 1866 Robertson’s Store building, closed a few years ago and has stood empty ever since. It is one of the oldest buildings on Front Street. It originally had a gable roof but was later replaced by a false front.
It was purchased a couple of years ago and work had begun but was halted due to, what I heard, were some shoreline permitting issues.
This morning I saw that things are finally starting to happen. There is a bunch of big equipment in front of the building.
They are working to shore up the bank and add a big new deck.
It also appears that things are starting to happen inside the building.
It’s going to be a multipurpose building with stores and housing bring new business to Front Street. I can’t wait to see what all will be in there and how it looks. Stay tuned!
Thanks for walking with me today. I hope you have a great week ahead!
