|A leisurely breakfast to start the sketch crawl at home.|
It was another rainy downpour of a day as I packed up my sketch kit and hopped in the car to meet with Tina for World Wide Sketch Crawl Day #50. Once I navigated the soggy, wet freeway to Lake Forest Park, I arrived at Third Place Commons and soon Tina found me working my way around the tables, looking for her.
We decided to have lunch at the nearby Lake Forest Bar & Grill while catching up on all the news since the last time we had seen each other. Lunch turned into "second breakfast" once we saw the menu.
It was still pouring down rain, so we went back to the Commons, a large indoor space with a bookstore, restaurants, empty stage and plenty of large tables and chairs just right for a long sketch session. I was fascinated by the automated fresh squeezed orange juice machine and the woman on her smart phone who leaned her crutches on it.

I would have liked to sketch the workers at Kitto, but they proved too elusive at first. Naturally, as we prepared to leave, three of them came to the front and presented such a nice group to sketch! Oh, well, another time. I thought the two of us did pretty well for only having one day of advance planning. See Tina's blog for a photo she took of us with our sketches today.
