Central Virginia looks a lot like Western Mass. which is probably why I kept running into people who had moved there from various parts of New England. Same scenery, similar lifestyle, but warmer climate (usually).
My daughter had a lot of things planned. On Friday we drove out to Richmond to do some shopping and participate in an art walk. Unique shops line about a mile of Cary St. (known as Carytown) where you can find high end boutiques, consignment shops, handmade chocolates, and arts and crafts. I really enjoyed out pit stop at Sweet Frog.
After a couple of Cuban sandwiches we headed off to the first Friday Art Walk. This too wasn't what I had expected. Art was not only displayed in galleries but also in a second hand shop, a couple of empty stores, and on the street. We saw strange paper mache art, deer legs (yup, real ones) stacked in a small tower, great political satire, and a little raunchy comedy.

I don't text message so I needed the gallery explanation to know what these said. Can you figure them out?
