It has every conceivable stand: produce, meat, nuts, baked goods, scores of food stands and arts and crafts. And lots of people!

Then we went to a tea shop located just a block off the market. All kinds of loose teas.

We went back to S&C's house - Ellen and I picked up walnuts- and we had a lovely meal outside on the patio, and then off again, this time to the Idaho Shakespeare Festival. The production was a musical based on the book The Secret Garden. Not an obvious book to turn into a musical, I must say, but it was actually quite affecting, and the children who played Mary and Colin were excellent.

Sunday morning we had breakfast with S&C and got off at about 9:30a.m. Another beautiful, sunny, cool day! Every day this week has been like that! The trip back to Alpine was lovely. We stopped this time in Picabo at the Silver Creek store.
When we entered the Swan Valley east of Idaho Falls, we stopped at the Clark Hill Rest Area overlooking the Snake River. Lovely. There was a memorial there to an Idaho author, Vardis Fisher, who wrote many novels about the Old West. Maybe not too different from Altsheler in his outlook and attitudes.

We're back in Alpine now - got in about 5:30p.m. Just had a nice supper on the deck (again!). We'll be taking care of Max this week. Betsey and Rob have returned from their trip to Columbia, MO. Betsey posted on Facebook a wonderful picture of herself with her running friends there. She looked really happy!
