Todd J. Warner is a sculptor of imaginative creatures based on real life animals tweeked to the extent that they become hilariously gross. He states that he sees beauty in ugly (or vice versa?) His shop is a museum of humor.
A jeweler is spending time in the shop developing jewelry based on Warners charactors but with his own modifications. We enjoyed some of his excellent work as well (his name?)
The third artist Cal Kemppainen has a variety of beautiful paintings on exhibit in the shop.
An interesting morning!!
We ate breakfast in Judy's restuarant (a recommended stop). I had the specialty of the house Judy's Mess containing eggs, cheezes, potatoe, ham, vegetables of all kinds, etc. with the whole thing scrambled, layered and mixed. Boy, it was good! Took 1/2 home!
Jayne behaved herself, excercised restraint and ate pancakes
The rest of the day will be spent on tasks and do some swimming in the marina pool.
