Dreaming of Tuscany... Looking back through all of the art I own and pictures I've taken throughout the years as we wait to open our own dream of Tuscany - la Balena - in Carmel, CA. It will be a California restaurant with a Tuscan heart.
Attended the BLUE Ocean film Festival opening night at the Sunset Center in Carmel, CA. Speakers included Sam Farr, Dr. Sylvia Earle and Jean-Michel Cousteau. The highlight was a screening of Otter 501 for Sea Otter Awareness week.
Went to an extremely unique French antiques sale today by Atelier de Campagne in Corralitos, CA. They just unloaded a container brought from Europe full of a vast range of interesting and beautiful objects and furnishings. The experience was made more memorable by the fact we were at a home in the California countryside arriving after passing through winding roads lined with apple trees. We even ate a few apples from their own tree and purchased a few small items for our restaurant. A dreamy and memorable experience!
