The trendy and hip village of Osborne

I have been house sitting in Osborne for the past week and am loving it. Not only is it super close to school, but it has so many cool shops and friendly people. Let’s just say, it didn’t take me long to fall in love with the hip and trendy village.

Here is a photo essay I made of the area and some of the people that make up the community:

"Eric the Great"

Eric Pyle, also known as “Eric the Great” plays on the streets of Osborne every day. “I enjoy the freedom of just being outdoors. There’s no difference between a famous musician and one on the street. We’re all musicians.”/MADELAINELAPOINTE
