Amazing place, Vizcaya museum one of the gems of antique properties in America, here are a few photos from our visit, and I have many more.

Eggs, spinach, really delicious, tomato onion salsa, and sprinkled with slices of cheese and green onion!

We were in Miami for a week, happily going out every day and night for our meals but I was craving a home cooked breakfast, so I put together a lovely spread with a tomato from Whole Foods, gruyere from Whole Foods, ham from Whole Foods and organic eggs from Whole Foods, the baguette is from a local baker zak the baker located in the Arts District…very apropos Miami I think!!!


a lovely little salad, at a new place called SAHA specializing in middle eastern food

freshly picked from my front yard…ready to eat or make a pie!!!!

loved the garden, the trellis and the shapes, hundreds of plants and trees, gorgeous place!

A lovely Sunday, walking on the path along the famous Erie Canal and passing the geese and their offspring that make it their home, in Bushnell’s Basin, NY and the Brighton High School Farmer’s Market, my old alma mater

quietly changing, old and new marries in Los Angeles, a historical district where Sunset and Hollywood abide along with the masses daily perusing the stars in the floor of the sidewalk nearby, the face of the city slowly disappearing and history getting swallowed up by giant hotels and apartment buidlings
