|The Description of the Anniversary Tea!|
I always make it a priority to go for tea whenever we are there. We decided on The Dorchester and we took the bus there so we could see the sights along the way. I always like to get dressed up and you will have to take my word for it. It was an overcast but not a rainy afternoon. We got off the bus and the heavens opened up. We turned the wrong way trying to get to the hotel. There was a mess of construction and I just got turned around. That's my story and I'm sticking to it, but by the time we righted ourselves, it was too late. We looked like two drowned rats. So much so that when we presented ourselves to the Maitre D, he looked at The Herbal Husband and asked him if he needed to go to the men's room to fix himself! Poor Herbal Husband! He was mortified and when he went to the men's room there wasn't a dryer in sight! He was not a happy camper. However, the multiple plates of sandwiches did ease the pain and he did enjoy the afternoon tea at The Dorchester and proclaimed it one of the best in London! It's that multiple sandwich thing! And of course, scones with clotted cream helped as well. It was a delicious afternoon. Oh and we got a tin each of Anniversary Tea. Very delicious.
Well, we have had little snow clippers each day for several days. An inch or two of snow not more, but just annoying at best. This day three years ago, we had almost two feet of snow! Glad we don't have that in the forecast. Hope you are enjoying our tea adventures. Will blog a bit about the European adventures seeing as I just realized that I haven't finished blogging about that! I do get sidetracked! I hope you are having a great day wherever you may be. Talk to you later.
