But no pictures, because I forgot the camera both days.
On Saturday D and I drove up into Montgomery County, MD, and visited a few stops on the Countryside Artisans fall studio tour. To keep D happy, we started at the art glass studio and furniture maker. Art of Fire had two friendly studio cats and a dog greeting visitors. I may visit again closer to the holidays to buy gifts for a few people. 2 Griffins may see a hall table commission from us later this year. I was tempted to purchase the lovely cherry coffee table he had available on Saturday, but we need a hall table first. We ended our tour at Kiparoo Farm. We were greet by a field full of sheep after driving up the 1 mile dirt driveway. The yarns are stunning. I was tempted by several yarns, but only purchased a shrug pattern. If I visit again without D, I'm sure that I will show much less restraint.
Sunday, I finally got a ride in the plane. We flew to Cumberland, MD, for lunch at the Runway Café. I had a tasty veggie omlet with amazing home fries and D had a grilled cheese sandwich with French fries. The total tab for lunch with $16 with a generous tip. The gas bill for the adventure was $125 and the engine overhaul account earned $45. The scenery over the mountains as the leaves start to turn was beautiful. If we go for another ride next weekend, I'll be sure to remember the camera.
