I’d been wanting to write a blog post this weekend, but I hadn’t taken any pictures this week to share with you. Today I had plans for a luncheon at a favorite spot that I’ve shared with you many times, Pickity Place. My sister, our best friend and I were in need of a nice girls’ day out. At the last second this morning as I was on my way out the door, I grabbed my camera and put in my bag. My thoughts were : I’ve taken so many pictures at Pickity Place, what new could I possibly find to share? It is November afterall – No leaves, no flowers, November. However, one lesson I’ve learned in the past is that it is the times that I don’t have my camera with me that I will surely wish that I did.
Perhaps it should have come as no surprise, I did find a few photos today. One of the wonderful things about Pickity is the way that it changes with the seasons and makes each one beautiful. The sun came out for a surprisingly warm day for mid-November in New Hampshire, and the sunlight seemed to have a special, almost filtered, quality to it at this time of the year. Today I found some beauty in the small details, details that I might not have otherwise noticed if it had been a day filled with striking flowers and bountiful greens.
Some of the most beautiful details come in the form of the amazing meals served at Pickity Place. I didn’t think to take any food pictures until we got to the last lovely course. Today’s dessert was a pumpkin spice roll with caramel-raspberry sauce with fresh whipped cream. The small quarters where the meals are served made it a little difficult for me to focus since I only had my 55-250mm lens with me, and I thought when I looked at the LCD that the dessert was my focal point. Instead, here you have focus on my delicious mulled cider and the remains of our refreshing water carafe, but you can get the idea! More great details:
Thank you Pickity Place – and Jennifer and Renae- for another fabulous afternoon.
