Heirloom Tomatoes

Sunday's farmer's market was a feast for the senses! Tomatoes, corn, stone fruit - in California, they're all hitting their peak.

Now, I'm not a tomato fan, but sometimes ... just sometimes ... a good tomato can send me over the moon. The heirlooms are here and at $1.75 a pound, they're certainly not a bargain, but they make up for it in deliciousness.

Quinn's Lighthouse

Georgia, Janie, Beth and I ventured out to Alameda - yes, Alameda - and enjoyed Sunday lunch at a great waterfront bar and grill-type place.

The food, the company and the ambiance were delightful.
