Sebastapol, California

Just a short drive north of Petaluma is the charming little town of Sebastapol, California. We pulled into town in time to catch their market day on the square in full swing. Fresh produce, food tents, local pottery and arts and crafts booths were set up around the square. We hadn’t eaten lunch yet so we wandered the square to see what our choices were before settling on the Mexican tent. It was delicious with fresh greens tossed on for garnish.

It was fun to sit and watch all the locals mingling around the square. Music struck up some where on the square and families and friends spread out blankets on the lawn to relax and enjoy the day.

I loved watching the kids playing in the fountain. They were prepared with their galoshes on to stomp around in the water.

On a street just a few blocks from the square is a folk artist’s dream – a street lined with whimsical junky folk art that I absolutely adored! These creations were made by Patrick Amiot and Brigitte Laurent and they’ve put this street on the map with their artwork. Patrick creates the sculptures from “junk” and Brigitte paints it.
