A Day in the City
Gill looks good all the time - even on a sand bar with a bloodhound on scent.
Today was not to be so outdoorsy...except that it was, and it was fun! Our plan was to head to a French bistro for lunch.
(Our BIG plan is that whenever we two have lunch, we try a different restaurant every time.)
And so we did.
Most of out walk took us through the residential neighborhood of Brookside with its decades-old Craftsman-style homes. Such a pretty neighborhood! So much old limestone and pretty old craftsmanship and architecture - it was certainly worth the trek. It is so trite to state, "They just don't make them like they used to." But really: they don't. I am an Old House fan, to be sure.
After a Croque-Monsier and a Croque Madame, we strolled down the avenue - nope: Boulevard - once again. It was a really nice lunch! Must do more frequently...
