An Evening in Galena
Today we drove to Galena and had dinner, took a long walk in town up and down the hills, had dessert and drove back home. It was a little crazy to drive so far just for dinner probably, but we had such a good time. Galena is so beautiful and the land so different from the flat lands we live in that we always feel like we've really had a get-away. This drawing is by Galena artist Carl Johnson, Jr. He has a gallery of his work on Main Street-if you get to Galena, check it out.He has wonderful watercolors. This stairway is one of the ones we climbed tonite!
We had dessert at a tavern where they put butcher paper and crayons on each table for the diners' amusement. This is the couple who sat across the room from us. I pasted it into my Moleskine when I got home.
