While in Lafayette, IN, this past week, I took some time to enjoy local sights and flavors. One evening I had a delicious vegetarian dish at an outdoor table at Bistro 501. Another night I met my friend, Carol Lutz, from Kokomo at McGraw’s on the Wabash River. We enjoyed watching local crew teams practicing on the river. I also went to the downtown Farmer’s Market and picked up fresh organic Indiana peaches and tomatoes. Yum! Then checked out some art stores and galleries. Picked up a great felted purse made out of repurposed wool sweaters from Lisa Walsh at Artists’ Own, a co-op art gallery with works from local artists.
Driving to schools, I passed many cornfields and fields of windmills, too. Visited classrooms and talked with teachers about space, small groups, and stations. Fall is in the air here. But I was back to hot, humid Houston for the weekend.
