What a glorious day we have here today. Currently, 61° F with brilliant, clear-blue skies. Max and I walked downtown to 3 Dog Café for a latté, but they aren’t open on Monday so we went to Java the Hut instead!! This small town has four – count ’em – four espresso places! The 3 Dog Café got the best review on yelp.com so I am looking forward to another attempt tomorrow morning.
When I tied him outside Java the Hut and opened the door to go in, a woman sitting on a couch said, “Oh, he can come on in! Dogs are welcome here.” So, in he went, and made instant friends with the two women sitting having coffee. He was pretty adorable as he sat in his most perfect, upright Poodle pose hoping that the woman making my latté had dog treats somewhere! She didn’t, but I had a pocket full and kept rewarding his charming behavior!
On the way, we spotted this beautiful butterfly on a flowering tree:
And check out this retro shopping area sign!
Not far away on Bullard Street, the Isaac Cohen house looked stunning against the blue sky:
We took my latté for a walk along the Big Ditch Park:
The Warren House (visible in photo above) – at the end (or beginning) of the Big Ditch Park, is the only house left standing after the 1895 flood that washed away Silver City’s Main Street and created the Big Ditch:
All in all, it was a lovely little walk. Max and the latté behaved well…
As we walked home, we spotted this flowering cactus in somebody’s side yard:
