The Art gallery is amazing. The gift shop is just as entertaining and the Blue Water Grill On The Hill is delicious! You can even walk the trails after lunch.

Local student artisans create a variety of beautiful objects, such as pottery, jewelry wood craft and paintings. I wanted to buy everything, but of course I could not afford to do that. Highly recommend this site to find one of a kind items.

We take motorcycle trips out that direction and try and stop by periodically to see what is new. Wonderful local artisans and unique things to see and buy. Worth the effort to go there if you're in the area.
