The Man and I met up with a few of the GR Flickrs for brunch today. We meant to meet at Kava House for coffee, then walk. Funny how so many coffee shops were closed for the holiday… including Kava House. D’oh! That’s fine though, because we ended up down the street at the Brandywine Restaurant. Mmmm, bagels…
After brunch we did a walkabout in Eastown, finally ending up quite by chance at the Beerhorst house. The Beerhorsts are an über-talented family of artisans who just happen to live in one of the coolest houses in Eastown. Mr. Beerhorst was very kind and invited all eight of us to prowl the premises for photos, and did we ever!
They have a lovely, productive garden in the back of the house, along with a small shed/studio and a few chickens. The studio is two levels with a lovely drawing and painting room upstairs, and a more functional work area on the ground level.
The family has an art show and sale at the house every Autumn and I’ve always wanted to go but never had the time. I think this year I must make the time.
After the Beerhorst house we rambled back to the Brandywine via some Eastown back streets, where I managed to pick up this lovely shot of a well decorated, aging blue garage.
What a great day! It was wonderful meeting up with Yolanda, Terry, Katie and the rest of the gang again after so long. We had a great meal together, a wonderful walk, and some refreshing conversation. Oh, and photos too! I hope I can make it to another meetup soon!
