This morning the four of us walked to the West Village for brunch at The Bakehouse, managing to stay on the outskirts of NYC’s Gay Pride Parade. It was a long walk, but we were rewarded handsomely with outstanding food. I ordered a fine herb and goat cheese omelet with a latte and a pain aux raisin to go and was full until dinner at 6! Best pastry I’ve had since France, and tasted very authentic. Also, the barista poured a peacock into my latte – beautiful work!
We said goodbye to Sarah and Pete and headed uptown to visit the Calverts. It was a quick visit, but very nice seeing everyone. We also stopped by to say hi to Marie – she was so full of happiness to see us, which of course, then made our day! Before we left she stood up to sing us a song – you can watch her perform here – I (with her permission) videotaped the special event: http://socialcam.com/v/RAQmggQX. She still has so much life in here, it is wonderful to see!
Thank you to Sarah and Pete for a lovely time and for being wonderful hosts! Thoughts and prayers go to the Calverts as they mourn the loss of Missy’s Uncle Billy, and Brian’s best friend, John.
