We have been in California, Bodega Bay to be exact; for almost a month now. We all know that California is a bit, shall we say…strange? Left coast and all that. Well we discovered Florence Street in Sebastapol. Yard Art reigns!
A beautiful residential street that has gone a bit mad.
An artful couplePatrick Amiot and his wife and fellow artist, Brigette Laurent have created havoc and art along this erstwhile pedestrian street. All kinds of “yard art” from baseball players to John Deere tractors adorn this neighborhood. It is also located next to what has become our favorite place for lunch in Sebastapol, Peter Lowell’s farm to table extravaganza of delightful foods.
We accidentally encountered this street via a wrong turn and have now been back several times. The old saying that “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure” is no more apparent than on this street. If you ever make it to Sebastapol, this is on the must do list! And a side benefit of our visit here we got to meet an old friend from Pinetta, Florida, Doris! Life is good in the slow lanes!
