Taking a Day Off

Tuesday I took the day off.  Believe me, after the summer I've had, I needed a day off.

Mr. L and I drove across the border to Niagara-on-the-Lake, a lovely little town on the Niagara River.  While my fictional village of Stoneham, NH doesn't look much like NOTL, I wish it did. (And I'm coaxing it, I'm coaxing it.)  By the way, if you click on the pictures, you should see bigger versions of them.
Our first stop, the Prince of Wales Hotel for afternoon tea.

The tea room was gorgeous.  We could have sat at the outer edge to watch the people on the sidewalk go past, but chose instead to sit "inside" and enjoy the lovely tea room itself.


The tea came out first.  Isn't this lovely china?


And next came the most delicious and fattening food . . .

After lunch, we walked around the town and just took in the lovely homes and other sights.

I think Mr. Horsey would have preferred to be standing in a meadow in the shade instead of pulling tourists on a hot day.

All in all, it was the perfect day.

Have you had a perfect day lately?
