Beautiful In Blue

Oh, what a pretty, pretty cravat!  Tonight's offering, narrow stripes of deep ocean and creamy sky, is just pretty.  It's like strolling through Old Town at Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, stopping in all the little shops.  You try on the hats at Beau Chapeau, and marvel at the curiosities at the Butterfly Gallery.  At Cecile's, the fabrics are gorgeous and the aromas transport you to milieux far beyond the torpor or tension of your everyday life.  But you and your companion mustn't linger overlong; you have tickets for a matinee at the Shaw Theatre, and you'd like a glass of wine and a cheese plate first.
