Tea by the Sea

It was a windy day.
I searched for the perfect spot to have a cup of tea.
Enjoying the moment was what I was searching for.
It was just around the corner, near the sea.
The wildflowers were blooming.
The book was ready.
I sat by the sea reading and sipping my tea.
Ahhh, such peace and such satisfaction in a day well spent.
Today take a moment to search and find peace.
What tea will you put in your cup?
What book will you be reading?

I was reading Blueberry Summers (Growing up at the Lake)
by Curtiss Anderson
I was sipping a lovely oolong tea.

Aaaaaah...The Sea! The sights, the sounds and the damp earthy smells. Your picture brought it all back to me. Thank You for posting this. It brought a time and place back to me that I haven't thought about for a while now. A good memory of a softer, more quiet time and place.___=^..^=___Kittie

This is absolutely my ideal of a peaceful day! Good for you!

Mary said...

The perfect teatime!!!

I'll have Earl Grey, a dash of milk (of course milk in first or The Queen will frown!), and please a chocolate digestive biscuit on the side (World Market is now stocking Cadbury's and they are delicious).

I'm reading First Darling of the Morning: Selected Memories of an Indian Childhood by Thrity Umrigar, and set in Mumbai ( Bombay).
