Getaway Saturday

Today I went down to Laguna Beach with Cathy Peron. We went to the Art-A-Fair at the Laguna Arts Festival. I picked her up at 11 and we drove down Laguna Canyon, got stuck in a little traffic in the canyon, which is to be expected. When we got there, we got a good parking space right next to the Tivoli Gardens.
We walked around and admired some art. Cathy decided to pose with the Shell Art. All the clothing and decorations are shells. Not Cathy's though.
By 12:15 the lunch buzzer in my stomach went off, so we headed for the cute little restaurant in the gardens. I had a delicious tuna melt with grapes and criss-cut fries, Cathy had a biga-burger with fruit. Afterwards, we walked over to this little garden setting and took some pictures. I felt like I was going to get the final rose from the bachelor there.

Cathy - also waiting for the final rose.

Then we continued through the rest of the rows of various types of arts and visited with many of the artists.
We've decided to start our own art classes at my house on Monday nights. So Carol, get your watercolors out and come over on Monday. You and I will teach Cathy how to paint. Ha Ha!!
A nice young man took our picture for us. It looks like Bufa and Dora are at it again. All we need are the beaded skull caps.

Here is a sampling of my art from the first watercolor class I took.
We had a really nice day down near the beach. The weather was perfect, warm with a cool breeze. It was not crowded at all. I had planned to go to the opening night last Wednesday, as I had received an invitation from one of the artists. Good thing I didn't go - there were 2700 people there. What a zoo, the artist told me.
So that's all for now.
Love, Kathy
