I prefer winter and Fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape — the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show. ~Andrew Wyeth

A Day in the Pine Grove

I got home from the Bay Area yesterday afternoon and today I had plans to meet friends up-country in Pine Grove. I worked in this town for five years at the elementary school. Always loved it here.
The weather is unseasonably warm this week and I'm really ready for winter, but it was beautiful driving up to my friends place. She lives in a lovely area above Pine Grove and down a long one lane road. We met at her house and then drove back into town for lunch.

This is the Blue Moon Cafe where we ate lunch. It's a new place with very good food. I had a salad with prawns. It was delicious! We enjoyed the company of old friends and got caught up on families, politics and opinions about all kinds of things. It was such fun.
We went back to our friends house and had dessert and tea..., talking and laughing about all kinds of things. It was such a relaxing day. Good friends are a gift.

Tomarrow I will have photos of my weekend visit.
