Victorian Holiday


Some people go to Paris. I came from Marin to Noe Valley for four days this spring. Hidden Cottage Bed and Breakfast couldn't have been more delightful. The inn had a bouquet of fragrant roses welcoming me in the sitting room.

Exploring the neighborhood with my sketchbook, I felt as though I was in a friendly place with many babies and dogs.

The quality and diversity of the restaurants was beyond my expectations! My city friends would come over for a drink, and then we'd walk to one of the nearby restaurants.

In order to avoid parking, I came in on the ferry, hopped on the J-Church streetcar, and walked right into the heart of Noe Valley.

It was fun talking with friendly people as I sketched and moved the architecture around a bit in order to draw all three styles of Victorian architecture.

Thanks, Noe! I'll be back!
