Girls Night Out

Yesterday, Carol and I went to Girls Night Out in the downtown Ocala area, which is sponsored by 18 different shops. The timeframe was 4 - 8 but we arrived early to have lunch at the Primary Oven market and bakery. This is quite a unique place that serves different fresh made lunches daily. And the desserts! Huge and good! Funny how when we get older huge meals and desserts are impressive to us! Anyway, after lunch, we walked around the town waiting for 4:00 p.m. The downtown Ocala area is quite old and they have some pretty historic buildings as well as speciality shops. If you look at the corner of this picture, you'll see the building where the Primary Oven is now located.

Our main stop was Bakers and Cooks a store that not only carries cooking items, but also houses a kitchen for both demonstration and hands on type cooking classes. They have lots of gourmet coffee, specialty teas, and samplings of their gourmet food products. We got to 'taste' some wine and brownies (we didn't eat our dessert at Primary Oven - we took it home). This is a neat store to find unusual gifts and cooking items...which we did!
It was a beautiful day for walking and sitting out side drinking coffee and spending money. Carol and I usually plan one day each winter to walk around the downtown area and it's always a really nice day and pleasant memory.
