Veruca does Richmond



Carolyn and I took Veruca on a tour of Richmond today. We walked Monument Ave. and viewed the statues of historical figures. (hometown hero Arthur Ashe, confederate generals etc.) Here is a pic of Veruca with Robert E Lee and his trusty steed Traveler.






We stopped by Richmond Dairy building for a minute, just because it is so great. Here is a photo of Carolyn and Veruca at the entrance to the building. The dairy, which is now newly remodeled apartments, is flanked on each corner by a Milk Bottle tower.
Carolyn was great to put up with Veruca as she was complaining the entire time that the milk bottles were making her thirsty.

We ended up at the Yarn Lounge for a little look see. Veruca can hardly contain herself in a yarn shop. She took a dive into a pile of lovely fiber as soon as we entered the store.

She will encourage you to spend with abandon. Again, I did not escape the Yarn Lounge without a shawl pin. More photos may follow if time permits.....
