Last year we were in the habit of getting our coffee at a little shop in the Fishermen's Villages called "The Ornery Attitude" (O.A.). From there we would wander outside and sit on a swing, overlooking Charlotte Harbor and the Peace River. Many nights we sat there sipping our coffee, enjoying a biscotti and watching the sun set as we heard the signal for the boat leaving the harbor, taking passengers on the sunset cruise. You can read more about this favorite spot of ours here.
This is what we found when we stopped today...
We went to our preferred farmer's market today, along with most of Punta Gorda and the surrounding area. Where did all of these people come from? It was never this busy last year. We bought some crab filled homemade ravioli, which we had for dinner along with vodka sauce and they were fabulous! I forgot to get the name of the vendor but we'll get it next week and find out where the business is located.
We also came across a new vendor displaying some of the cutest little dresses I have ever seen. I commented to Mr. Bill about one that I thought would look especially cute on my granddaughter, Ella. However, when I looked at the back, there wasn't anything there, other than a little strap, which I found odd. Luckily, it only took a split second (okay, maybe a couple of seconds) to figure out that it was designed for a dog, not a child. duh This little booth belonged to Koolnani's, owned and operated by a very pleasant woman by the name of Theresa Diaz. I did ask if I could take a couple of photos for my blog and told her about one of the volunteers at the shelter, Beth H., who designs outfits for the shelter dogs. She explained that she owns a couple of Yorkies and started designing outfits for them, then others asked her to make some and next thing, she was in business.
firstname.lastname@example.org. I did place an order but it's a surprise, so I can't tell you about it.
It was a very nice day here, 72*, mostly sunny and windy. We had a great walk along the river but came back a different way, just for a change of scenery and because we can.
Titan is a little out of sorts today; hope he's back to his usual self tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by...
