Today we are visiting Cambria, a little town 20 miles north of Morro Bay. Cambria is a short drive inland from Highway 101. No fog here, a bright and sunny day. We visited a couple little antique shops and then headed to one of our favorite places for tea, The Tea Cozy. This tea room is housed in the sweetest little 100 year old cottage. Not only do they serve traditional teas and light lunches, they also have a nice selection of English groceries.....teas, cookies, candies, jams and sauces. We are having the Royal Tea today. There are over twenty tea selections but we are having a standard... Earl Grey.
Add a touch of cream and a lump of sugar......so good. I've always adored Blue Willow China. I must be a romantic because I love the sweet myth depicted on the plate~~~that of the star crossed lovers who were turned into immortal love birds......reminds me of something from Shakespeare.
This is the Royal Tea...a selection of sweets and savories. Lisa and I have a little ritual, we takes turns choosing what sandwich or scone to eat.....the sweets we save for last.
One last little cup of tea and then a little shopping. This was a favorite little shop......The Feathered Nest........
Love the window display. The nest has wonderful little antiques, pretty Fall items and fun Halloween goodies. We found a couple of little treasures I'll share another time.
Time to head back to the Inn. On our way we're stopping at the Cotton Ball. This is a wonderful quilt and knitting shop. We brought our knitting needles and hope to find some pretty yarn for scarfs......hope you enjoyed the day....hugs, Linda
