pink & white

taffy shop
Oh, I really like this building. Why can't every building look like this?

Jeff and I drove up to Bodega Bay on Saturday, just to look around and get out of the city for a spell. We stared at the ocean, saw (a bit of) a whale, ate at the restaurant that Tippi Hedren goes to in The Birds, and bought some salt water taffy from the place pictured above. Sometimes it's nice to take a drive through hills and trees and take deep breaths.

I'm not kidding about the pink & white buildings thing. Isn't it gorgeous?

That building is wunnerful in it's striposity. And I REEALLY love the clouds hanging out above it. They, too, wish to be so stripe-ed.

This is a great photo, composition-wise...the churning clouds and the cheerfully-pink building.

It's my ideal beach hut style. I only know of salt water taffy from the episode in Friends where Ross buys some for a girlfriend - it's all quite mystifying to me - but at least I now know why it should be such an attractive gift!

By the way, I know I may be last person to see it, but I love your Kate pattern on Knitty. Well done!

Sounds like a lovely weekend!

Thanks for the stripe-alious pic, it really brightened up gloomy day, which is to be spent at home with a sick child.... Oh well, at least it ought to give me time to finish up another Henry....

That building is one of my first memories -- I grew up going to Bodega Bay and have enjoyed many wax paper wrapped bits from that shop. You've captured it perfectly!

So nice to find another NorCal Jess crafting and blogging -- we're not alone :)
