An Afternoon in Greece!
Friday night I found some info about the OC Greek fest which sounded like a lot of fun and I decided to asked Grace if she wanted to go. Saturday was a beautiful day to be outdoors with the sun shining through big, white, puffy clouds and after a leisurely morning sipping coffee and eating a yummy omelet Grace and I were on our way to "Greece". This event is put on every year at St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in Anaheim. They even had free shuttles from the parking area! We got there around one in the afternoon and were soon engrossed wandering through all the booths and vendors and surrounded by traditional Greek music playing in the background. There were so many pretty jewelery pieces I wanted to get one of each! Next was the food area and was it good! We had lamb skewers, fried potatoes with lots of feta cheese on top and then topped it all of with some Greek coffee and a delicious pastry. While we were eating we watched folks get up and dance to the traditional music and also caught a Greek cooking demo. Then we took a stroll through the church with it's interesting traditional paintings. All in all it was a fun afternoon!
