We ate delectable Almond Crossants in the al fresco dining area of the Fell's Point location of Bonaparte Bread and the weather was just so beautiful. It was breezy but not too cold and oh, was that pastry wonderful. We talked and laughed and for me, the world felt a little better balanced, because it's been rather a long while since we've spent time together and I always notice that.
There was time for a walk and the wharf on which Bonapart is located also includes the awesome old building that houses the Inn at Henderson's Wharf. It has grand arched windows and shutters and stunning old brickwork and is right on the water. It would be SUCH a fun location for a photo shoot. One side of the building has giant letters situated between all the windows, but from our angle we could not decipher if they spelled out words or what. I've searched and searched and all I can find are photos of a different side of the building, so I'm now on a mission to find out what those letters say. The building used to be a tobacco warehouse, so I suspect it might have something to do with that.
It was a marvelous little morning out, and I count myself a seriously lucky girl when I think about all the friends I'm blessed to have. Moments like this are like the fresh fruit in the salad of life-bursting with color and sweetness, yet good for you at the same time.
