i went there with my friend sam. she is really cool and smart and funny and makes an excellent road trip companion. we had cds ready to play, with fun music on them - the kind that is best on roadtrips and gets you super pumped and makes you car-dance. but we didn't even listen to any until the last hour, on our way home when we needed it playing loudly to keep up awake. driving is safer that way. no, instead of music, we talked. and talked and talked. and it was one of the most splendid and special times i have gotten to spend my dear friend. she is a kindred spirit.
with no plan of action, we ambled around, taking in all the sights of quirky shops and quirky people, and the air led us to good food, bookstores, sunshine, coffee, and music. all good things.
