Even Dirty Dan Harris seemed to be enjoying the music! Dirty Dan, as locals affectionately call him, was the founder of Fairhaven. In 1883 he filed the first platt in the area. Harris was an adventurer/enterpreneur who was often involved in scandals...sometimes spending time in the pokey for his antics. Most of them involved liquor. Here's a great link that tells about Dan Harris in more detail:
Fajitas! We could smell the sizzling steak and peppers as we strolled through the courtyard. Though we hadn't intended to dine out, we were overcome by the music, sunshine and the aroma of Mexican food. Not to mention that Milagro's had a balcony overlooking the green where we could listen to the music!
A couple of views from the balcony...
Note the 'Village Books' and 'Colophon Cafe' sign. If you are an out-of-towner, these places are a must see. Though we enjoyed our fajitas, I think the Colophon is the best restaurant around. Especially if you like soup. And you know I do!
A couple dancing in the Green. I just know that years from now these couples will look back fondly at the day they danced in sunshine on Village Green.
Another couple cuts the rug. They say that the phrase ' to cut the rug' came about because some folks danced so often and so well that they wore out the rug. I would love to be able to dance well. Hubby and I took a few lessons...it was pretty hysterical! I didn't think he was doing it right and he didn't think I was doing it right! I think we were pretty frustrating to our instructor. Still, learning to dance is on the list of things to do in retirement...because if I have the chance to sit it out or dance...I'd like to dance!
