Coffee Break

Whenever we have time and are in town, we love to go to Gallery Espresso to hang out for a little while. Last week, on the way there, we walked through Madison Square and took yet another photo as I am always struck by how beautiful it is.
At the cafe, we sat outside and watched this patient bicycle taxi driver wait for customers,
and this one giving his passengers a little bit of information about Savannah.
Several tour buses came by with very attentive tourists on board.
And all of that while we were enjoying an excellent cup of coffee
and sharing a most delicious brownie!
It was a happy coffee break!
Daniel and I are leaving on a road trip this Friday, so I am going to spend my week getting our gear together (we'll be camping part of the time), getting our house ready for our house sitter, who will stay with Winslow and Ramses, and being creative in my spare time! It'll be a busy week!

I hope your week is off to a good start and look forward to visiting your blogs! Thank you for continuing to visit mine!!
