Our glorious fall weather is upon us! The days are cooler and the humidity has dropped. We don’t get much of a leaf peeping season here with only one tree on our street that changes colors. The rest of the trees, especially all of the palm trees, are pretty consistent with their green color year round.
The ferns in the courtyard (photo) are really enjoying the weather. The Australian Tree Fern is enormous this year and the hanging ferns are really doing well.
I took a short walk downtown this morning and saw the first real sign of fall… a young woman, probably from out of town, wearing a sweater, a scarf and high boots.
I checked out a few restaurant construction sites whilst out. The brewpub is close to having the exterior finished, just waiting on the huge skylight to seal the building. There were trucks of all the trades parked out back so stuff must be happening inside. I am really looking forward to the opening!
The crepe shop down the street, across from Nana Theresa’s Bakery, is coming along nicely. Roberto of Espana has added on to his building and that looks ready to open soon. Luca’s (a second restaurant downtown for Luca of Ciao Bistro) looks about ready to open as well. Gilbert’s Underground Kitchen, on 8th Street, has taken another building across the street from his restaurant and will soon open a barbecue restaurant.
So much to see on such a short walk and so many new restaurants to tempt us!
