A perfect Saturday morning

So happy our PLACE is Charlottesville

A beautiful sunny day! We caught the CAT for a walk on the Downtown Mall and a  trip to the Charlottesville City Market where we bought our colorful summer vegetables at the Medina Farm stand. We headed to Baggby’s Sandwich Shop to cool off and enjoy a  cup of coffee, and then caught the bus to go back home.  We feel so active, healthy, and engaged – and fortunate to live in Cville!

Why eat a rainbow? Daily Progress has the answer!
