I work in downtown Philadelphia six days a week, which culminates in a desire to seize every opportunity I can to leave town. It doesn’t need to be very far; leaving the city feel of a city is enough. On Sunday I made it to Clover Market for the first time after hearing about it over a year ago. Clover Market is a monthly craft/antique/vintage flea market that occurs from April through June. I bought a few things for my new apartment, which I’m moving into next week (!). They’re already stowed away, so I’ll photograph and share them another time. From Clover Market, Dan and I went to Terrain, where we found our friends Carl and Kiley, and where I went totally googly eyed. I had to smell all of the trees and try to guess the name of every color flower and read the book flaps of every cookbook and play with everything and walk around in a hundred circles. Like a kid in a candy store, I tell you. A kid’s first visit to a candy store.
The third stop and final destination of the day was Galer Estate, a beautiful winery located just 45 minutes outside of Philly. We enjoyed a leisurely wine tasting and a tour of the grounds. It was my first wine tasting, and everyone who was working went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Late afternoon was spent on the outdoor deck with wine and fresh bread for hours and hours.
Hello Dan, Kiley, and Carl.
