Breakfast pastries and coffee at the farmer's market today. We missed Saturday's market, which is much larger, but enjoyed the more intimate atmosphere of Tuesday market. We bought a bouquet of multicolored radishes, some tiny potatoes, english peas and fresh cherries. Mmmm.
After the market we headed to the Georgia O'Keefe Museum, a must see in this museum filled city. After an enjoyable visit we strolled the surrounding neighborhoods, loving the warm air and blue skies.

Not far from the Museum we were drawn to a beautiful Porcelain Gallery and when we went in we discovered it was owned by a good friend of a good friend of ours (Sandra!). Her name is Heidi Loewen and she went to the Harley School with Sandra. The "its a small world" vibe continued when we found out she graduated from Skidmore Collge, Jesse's alma mater, and that her dad worked for Bausch and Lomb and still lives in Rochester. She is an internationally known porcelain artist specializing in wheel thrown porcelain vessels. We had a ball talking with her and seeing her work.

The breakfast pastries were long gone by then, so we asked her for a local restaurant recommendation. We wanted a light lunch and she recommended a winner....Bumble Bee.
|such a nice day we chose to sit outside|
|Cool white wine, shrimp taco and salad, just enough|
|A nice quiet lunch guest joined us|
On our way back to the car, we passed the huge old cottonwood tree I showed you in yesterday's post. We approached it from the other direction today, and look what was hiding in the trunk on this side. There must be a story...
