Gretchen and I met Sally for a walk-about Frederick Saturday; a town we had never stopped to explore but Sally knows well as a graduate of Hood College. It has a vibrant downtown hosting a variety of specialty shops and restaurants with a lot of foot traffic on this afternoon. We met on the corner of Market and Patrick streets, the historical town center, and strolled around the adjacent streets before dinner. Sally chose a Mediterranean restaurant (Ayse Meze Lounge) to eat at and to celebrate her birthday.
The food was superb and we enjoyed sharing several rounds of meze.....and a few excellent oatmeal stouts from the local Brewer's Alley Brew Pub before celebrating with the only item on the menu that would hold a candle!
After dinner we walked along the Carrol Creek Linear Park. It is a very well done urban renewal of a creek area with a walking path, condos, and restaurants.
Fun time Sally, it was great seeing you. We're just sorry Gwen could not join us due to her surgery. So get well soon Gwen....next time is just abound the corner!
