Mason 5/23/2020

In an effort to avoid COVID19 restrictions we found another YRE in a small town.  Mason was open with restaurant dining, etc.  Museums and Library were still closed.  Here is what we saw on this walk around Mason.

Mural on the side of Country Collectibles.  They had some nice stuff.
