First night started out with a fancy dinner at Hugo's Restaurant. So many tastings of wonderful food.
Crabmeat Salad in compressed Apple and Tofu foam and Sea Moss
Scallops wrapped in Nori with Pickled Daikon Radish
Skate roasted yummy vegetables with a citrus oil and a smoked tomato sauce
Meat of some kind (I am sorry I can't remember because I don't eat meat but it was enjoyed by a friend)
French toast with Carmel topping sitting atop hops
Grapefruit sorbet, granola and egg yolk
Homemade Marshmallows, Lemon curd, and Torrone
All was very good and the waiter took our picture after every course was served. He also went to the kitchen and looked up Zentangle and was very interested. I wished we had had a tile to leave behind :(
From Pizza to seafood, we ate it all and had a wonderful time together. It always goes so fast but, we are already looking forward to Tangle U Santa Fe in 2015!
Fellow CZT Chris Titus then spent the next five days at our home in Round Pond Maine where we "mostly" played with our new supplies. What a lot of fun to have a fellow tangler in the house for many days. It was funny that most of our time we spent at the same table and did not speak a word for hours so engrossed in our projects we were. She is a wonderful cook and took care of the meals, was an awesome house guest and a really great friend. What follows are some pictures of our finished works. The colored piece alone took each of us a couple of days to complete and so much fun. The idea came from Marizaan van Beek who traveled from Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa to Canada for a visit, but took some time to teach a class before her journey to Tangle U. CZT's are a very generous group.

We had a mixture of some rainy days, some beautiful days, some windy days and several visits from eagles both young and old. Quite a pleasurable week!
