After we saw the beauties of the Farmer’s Market, we walked along the Park Blocks, enjoying the dappled sun and people watching. Auntie Bridgett hadn’t found lunch at the market, so we stopped in to the Portland Art Museum cafe to get her a salad.
The museum has closed “The Map is not the Territory“, the exhibit with the floating rocks piece by Annette Bellamy, and is currently setting up something Auntie Bridgett is REALLY looking forward to, “Paris 1900“. This will include paintings, decor, and styles from what is called La Belle Epoch, or Beautiful Era, in France. It will be gorgeous, I am sure.
We wandered a bit in the courtyard of the museum, enjoying the outdoor pieces like “Rhododendrons”. I like looking at one piece of art through something else, or just past something else, seeing how they go together.
Today I noticed how the tower of the First Congregational Church made a pretty arrangement with the giant Orchids, the elm trees, and Mistral #2.
I also realized how much I enjoyed exploring this lovely city with my wonderful people. How lucky can one Grandma Judy get?
