Kitchen Table Saturday, November 10th 2018.
In the morning we rose to a brilliant sun. After a delicious breakfast in the courtyard we rented a convertible at a nearby car rental office (convertibles are everywhere) and we were off to Palapas, the famous art gardens. Located in picturesque Araby Cove Palapas is a unique hands-on artist colony. It is also the area’s oldest nursery. Tricking waterfalls and colorful foliage provide an ideal setting, and Palapas has become a premiere destination. But this day we had it practically to ourselves, and we enjoyed watching the artists demonstrate glass-blowing, weaving, marble-sculpting, and oil-painting, I was fascinated with one sculptor who created sinks and fountains out of boulders. On display was one finished example of a large bathroom sink which he had spent weeks creating.
