Habitats and Picnics

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday (those in the U.S. of course) The Mister and I went to the Presidio the day after the 4th (specifically to avoid crowds and that silly colored fog;) for a picnic to test out the new wares from Mom. A lovely picnic basket and a quilt she made for us.

And to check out a new exhibit, Habitats. An invite only competition to bring attention to all the critters that share our environment. You may or may not remember the sculpture by Andy Goldsworthy awhile ago. This is a similar venture and one that I can really get into.

If you have some time I urge you to go see the work... it's a bit like a lovely treasure hunt.
