hot chocolate art

Penny and I had a lovely day today at Heide Museum of Modern Art. First we strolled around the sculpture gardens; Penny examined the base of every tree in detail, and I looked at the plants and the art works.

Next we headed down to the little off-lead walk behind the gallery, and Penny even had a quick dip in the Yarra River at a spot I've never visited before.

After that, we sat a an outdoor table at Cafe Vue. It's a rather posh place, so I wasn't sure whether a shaggy dog and her shaggy old owner would be allowed to sit there. I popped inside to check and was told by the barista that it would be fine.

And this is what he sent out for me to drink!


I think he must have peeped outside and spotted Penny, because it's a terrific likeness. Don't you agree?


What a lovely way to make us feel welcome. And it tasted delicious.

proud womon - aagh! it's so hard to get the computer to accept this spelling, they must have updated something on my computer - I'm off now to have a look at that link.
Thanks.
