We took hundreds of photos of windows and doors, hillsides and streets. Everywhere we turned was something exquisite. Even the doorknobs were fantastic. How is it possible to have so much lovely in one town?
Lunch at Lizzy's was phenomenal. A seafood chowder like I've never had before. Sitting in the front window stools, you can watch "window theater" and see some interesting stories unfolding on the street. Yesterday in the midst of a rush of traffic, one driver recognized a lady on the footpath and stopped to have a chat while the folks behind him waited patiently. Those of you in south Florida know this would not go over well at all in the states! Lots of lovely lads in caps, young ladies with heads full of auburn curls, folks dressed up for a wedding in town and an endless stream of small cars, transit vans, tractor trailers and large tractors meandered through the narrow streets in front of us.

Along the way home, we found a small, gated courtyard with a gang of yorkies inside. Today's piece is inspired by one of these friendly tiny guys, who smashed his face cutely between the bars in a way that was sure to garner some petting from passersby.
