The day started with a long walk to the farmers’ market! We asked the hostel’s desk clerk for directions.
The shopkeeper even put the sweets into my tupperware instead of the default styrofoam tray. Yay!
Of course, I was super interested (and pleased to hear that they get enough business). But the shop only uses one particular last, which I’m not interested in. So, that’s a no-go unfortunately.
We visited Sutter’s Fort and the State Indian Museum after lunch. Sutter’s Fort was an early settlement in California. I knew it only from it’s association with the Donner Party – it’s where they stayed to recover. I assumed Sutter’s Fort was a military fort, but… actually it was this guy’s private village.
Curiously, the fort was renovated in the late 1800s. So despite the fact that it’s not original, it’s historical in its own right.
We had disappointing Japanese food for dinner, so I’m not going to include pictures. All the photos are from J, by the way. We figured out a better way to share photos.
