We always had plans to head over to our seachange destination today, but we never thought it would turn out like this:
We’ve already been to About Thyme twice before; this was our 3rd visit. I am still yet to post my food review of our first time there, but oh man… today was exceptional.
It wasn’t just the food. The melt in your mouth gnocchi. The comforting barley and chicken soup.
Or the pinot grigio. Crisp, sharp, clean.
Or the coffee. Warm. Strong. Smooth.
Or the above-and-beyond service we received.
We were all happy. We were all calm. We had bliss, because baby girl was happy, and calm. She drew in a scrapbook from a children’s toy basket with pencils from the same basket, and that activity, along with finding various other picture books to leaf through, kept her busy, amused, and satisfied.
Then there was the weather. It was windy and cold. It was fantastic. I mean, where else do you want to see the Wintery world from, other than from inside a café?
I’m grateful for moments like these. These are the greatest moments, more because they come unexpectedly. The joy is more pleasant, more surprising and more gratifying than you can imagine.
