Outakes (A Lovely Weekend)

Handsome came to visit, and we had a lovely time traipsing about. First, the Dali Museum.

This museum holds the largest collection of Dali’s works in the United States. The architecture of the building is supremely whimsical, and the staircase in the pictures above is a signature part of the museum’s appearance. I could not take photos in the galleries where the work is displayed, but suffice it to say I was blown backwards and sideways by much of what I saw.

Another fun thing about the museum is that it has lovely photo opportunities. The first set is of the third floor gallery looking out into the garden and the marina beyond. The second is in front of a foam sculpture out in the garden that includes sculptures and a labyrinth.

Seeing as how we were in the area, we decided to stop by the beach. Twas a perfect day for it, with perfectly flat water and the weather cooperating right until we left.

What better way to top off an excellent weekend than a trip to the farmers market? We joined ZeldaStark for the trip, and she basically flipped out at the sight of some pumpkins that were sitting on display. My basket this week included the usual fare, with the addition of champagne mangos and kiwi. Could not have asked for a better time.
