Sketchcrawl 2/19/2011 Results

Two of us hunkered down to sketch at Coffee & More in Sunnyvale on a cold and rainy day. The cafe is located in the historic Del Monte building that was built over 100 years ago. It served first as a drying facility for the famous fruits of Santa Clara Valley. The products were shipped to San Francisco and other outlets on the nearby railroad. Later the building was used a place for growing seedlings. The city of Sunnyvale maintains a heritage orchard containing apricot trees that previously blanketed the area. The orchard is located next to the Community Center and Heritage Park Museum. http://www.heritageparkmuseum.org/  Seeing the orchard in full bloom, and then purchasing the fruit in early summer is a special treat.
