St. Caffeina

29 May

To me, the town felt like a cross between old town Ellicott City, Maryland and Deadwood, South Dakota. Except there was art everywhere. Lots of eclectic shops, too, which we did not even bother to peruse since I had all of about 4 square inches of extra space in my backpack.

I’m no art aficionado. But if there’s any art I like, it is art with a sense of humor.

Look closely at the words surrounding St. Caffeina’s halo and you’ll see that it reads “double grand mocha no whip.” (HINT: click on the image and you’ll get a closer look.)

It struck me as funny for some reason. Not “ha-ha” funny, mind you. Just interesting.

I’d love to have the talent to do something like this.

It would have been fun to spend more time in Eureka Springs, but we still had miles to go before we slept. So back on the bike we climbed…
