Hastings

Peanuts! Dang it, I forgot to put captions and now I've forgotten the name of this place. It was a peanut bar, peanut shells everywhere. I'd know it if I saw it!

Oh! I found it! “Busted Nut!”

That's the bridge to get into Hastings. It probably has a fancy name, but maybe it doesn't. The bridge before it had a fancy name, because it had this cool spiral exit ramp and was the first of it's kind, but they tore that one down in the fifties. I guess it wasn't that fancy of a name – “Hastings Spiral Bridge” – but it was unique and pretty cool nonetheless.

I don't know what this building is. I suppose it was built as a chemists, or pharmacy, or apothecary? Something that would use the symbol of mortar and pestle, I suppose.

This wins the award for the weirdest thing I've ever seen. Also, I have to warn you, it's not for sale. (How could it be? It's priceless!) But now that you know it's not for sale, don't you want to buy one? I know you do. You can't fool me.

I think it's fun that Hastings decided to emblazon it's name into this hill, which faces the river. I'm not sure how they did it, what was used, or who decided to do it. It seems a bit like a prank to me, but maybe it was actually voted in and paid for by the city?
