In the height of the summer season, I rarely get an opportunity to sit quietly and have a leisurely lunch. Yesterday was different as I took my sister-in-law and granddaughter to the Tea Room at the Emlen Physick Estate. It was a delightful experience for all of us as we sat for almost 2 hours enjoying wonderful scones, breads, quiche, fruit and dessert. It was that rare opportunity to really slow down and talk -- no, actually listen to others as they shared their thoughts. This will be one of those special times that I remember as I resume my daily activities preparing for guests.
Wherever you are, consider enjoying a tea with friends and you will experience a truly wonderful time. If you are in the Cape May area, go to the Carriage House Tea Room at the Physick Estate and enjoy theirs. You will really have a special time.
