Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park, CaliforniaWe met a Michigan summer friend at the most beautiful place - Allied Arts Guild. The gardens were gorgeous, the cafe was charming, the food was delicious, and it was such fun to catch up with a Michigan friend in California. Wisteria, roses, and everything else are blooming here.
Lunch was fantastic. I had salade niciose with baked salmon and tiramisu - both a first for me. Where have I been, huh?
That evening we went to the elementary school science fair where our granddaughter took first place for the fifth grade. What a treat for us to be there for the award ceremony.
All in all, a great day.
If you are in the area of Menlo Park (very near Palo Alto), it is a perfect place to take your watercolor journal. Is this too far for my Michigan classes to take a road trip? No, I don't think so.
