A couple of weeks ago, the City started putting these bistro tables in Market Square. The idea is for people to sit and relax, meet up with friends, or have a snack. Sketching wasn't mentioned in the news item, but woo-hoo! They're a sketcher's dream.
People don't seem to be flocking to them yet. Every time I sit there, at least one person stops to ask, "What's going on? Why are these tables here?" But I think word will soon get around. Then it'll be hard to find a seat!
