Mini to the Max!

The Turtle visits the Minimax

The Turtle visits the Minimax

Earlier today, my boyfriend and I rode our bikes to the Minimax to pick up a select few groceries (milk, apples, pears . . . um, chips?). The Minimax is probably one of the last of the small independent grocery stores left in the town. I love it, despite the fact that the aisles don’t go on for miles and you can’t find your more “exotic” (read: hummus and pita) items on the shelves there.

One of the best things about the Minimax is its proximity to our house: Only a little over a mile away, it’s a brisk bike ride there and back. There’s nothing like going to a smaller, non-crowded grocery store on a beautiful Saturday, picking up those essentials you were running low on, and then heading back out into the cool blue sunshine, groceries packed into your backpack or your front basket.

  1. Great blog and great work on the bike riding!

  2. We have one independent grocery store left in our town! It’s been here a while and I’m happy to say, well supported. But heck with that! What I really want to say is, LOVE THE BIKE!! I wrote a post a few months ago about my cruiser “Desperado!” That bike and I have had our share of good times, and I just had another great ride on it this week! Cruisers rock!

  3. Carol: Thanks for the props; my plan today is to walk 2 miles, continuing my “small steps” to fitness plan :).

    Dr. J: Cruisers rule!! My bike is an Electra Townie and it’s so fun to ride.

  4. Our bikes and helmets are the same colors! Only I think my bike may be a tad cuter. It would be a LOT cuter with one of those nifty baskets and a rack bag. (must work on those)

  5. Cammy: My bike is TOTALLY the cutest!! I just need some festive stickers on it, or something. . . . :b
