Then we strolled along and admired the architecture of the village and took a few photos. We went into Danier Leather where Josie helped me choose some red leather gloves and a beautiful scarlet scarf that will look perfect with either my black leather jacket or my brown wool winter coat. We also ambled into a housewares place and saw lots of neat things and where Josie picked up a little something as a Christmas present for someone.
By then, we'd made our way all the way back to the car so decided to head up toward Cleveland Dam at the top of the mountain. We got lost and never did find the Dam. It seemed like we ended up going in circles and had to resort to asking a pedestrian how to get back down to the highway! But did we see some gorgeous homes! In the photo below, imagine us above the buildings (on the left side) driving on cedar tree-lined streets almost to the top!
