Stopping By the Gift N' Gab

Please pardon my incessant hopping around.  It's what happens when one takes a blog break.  I also think that I'm in need of a better way of cataloging my photos and verbiage.  Any tutorials out there?

Today, we are back in Fond du Lac.  Did I mention that the weather was ideal?  No jackets required.  Only one morning of a refreshing rain although the skies did look a bit threatening for awhile.

Barbara and I headed out to the Gift N' Gab for a look around and lunch.  The aroma of good coffee greets comers and entices one to have a cup while browsing a tasteful selection of gifts.  There's a large fireplace with comfortable chairs and sofas.  We were on a mission to have lunch and we were in for a treat with the special of the day.

It was a turkey and goat cheese sandwich on a thin ciabatta that had been slathered with a seedless blackberry jam and toasted.  The turkey was sliced from a roasted breast and about 1/4 inch thick.  It was accompanied by a salad of fresh blackberries and strawberries on a bed of fresh greens and dressed with a light vinaigrette.   We savored every bite before heading out for the afternoon.
