Friday in Palo Alto

Yesterday we were on a 7 AM flight to San Francisco. We arrived, got our rental car and were on our way to Palo Alto by 9. Our first stop was Cafe del Doge in Palo Alto. The coffee comes from Venice, the baristas are expert at coffee art, and we had the added pleasure of company of Joan and Fred, and their delightful house guests, Bob and Betty.


I had my usual double latte, and Brad had a "marocchino", a martini glass, dusted with cocoa powder, espresso, and more cocoa. Here is Joan's lovely fern-topped cappuccino:


Then we shopped, shopped, and shopped from 11 to 4, with a lunch and a coffee break. I had fun at stores we don't have in the desert, like Crate and Barrel, Nordstrom, and, Kepler's Bookstore.

We had a drink, and met on friend, Roxanne for a great dinner. It was GORGEOUS weather!
