HAPPY NEW YEAR! Tuesday was bright and sunny. Rem and I drove up to Petaluma for a stroll around, some window shopping and some lunch.
Some shops were closed for New Year’s Day but there was still plenty to see and enjoy. Copperfield Books was one of our first stops.
Petaluma has lots of beautiful, old buildings with great architectural detail.
I chose sepia for the photo below because with modern cars cropped out, it looks like the photo could have been taken in an earlier era.
A highlight to our visit was this little shop, the Petaluma Pie Company.
The charming shop has both sweet and savory pie and uses organic and local ingredients in their pies. They sell single serving hand pies, (5-inch turnovers), individual pies in small pie tins and full-sized pies.
They had a variety of savory pies that were hot and ready to eat as well as many delicious looking sweet pies in different shapes, sizes and varieties. We’ll have to return for more tasting.
We split a Beef Empanada hand pie that was delicious: loaded with mildly spiced beef, onions, green olives and raisins.
They have t-shirts and mugs with this slogan:
It’s time for PIE!
A collection of old- fashioned egg beaters adorn one wall.
Sweet little birds crafted from mini pie tins flutter across another.
There were miniature pie-tin magnets made from bottle tops at the front counter.
More pie-themed art added to the charm of the shop.
I’m already looking forward to a future visit.
After we ate, we wandered down to the Petaluma River.
Rem greeted a sweet dog.
It was a great outing.
Thanks for your visit.
