About a month ago, I drove to my local Safeway only to discover that construction had begun behind a shut-down restaurant which is located west of the grocery store. I was also surprised to see that one of the two entrances that go from the side-street to the Safeway parking lot was fenced off. That seemed really strange. I thought Safeway must have charged a lot of money for that privilege.
Soon a big metal structure rose from the ground. I had never seen anything like it. Was it an elevator shaft? That didn’t seem right. This didn’t look like any normal building site. I asked the staff at the grocery store, but they didn’t know either. Someone said they thought the restaurant was being torn down. I knew I could have asked the construction workers, but I assumed they were interrupted with that question many times a day. I decided to just let the mystery unfold.
I took all of the photos in this post this morning. I love that you can see the moon beside the crane.
Yesterday the mystery was solved.
No wonder it didn’t look like a normal construction site! I have wished for some time that we could have a Safeway fuel station reasonably close to where I live so that I could take advantage of the store’s gas discounts. There will soon be a station less than a mile from my house!
