Every year my second oldest daughter takes a week of holidays in December and it has become a lovely tradition that we visit certain shops at some point during that week. We had a break from all the rain we've been having and walked around browsing ( she bought some gifts, I mostly contented myself with looking).
I love the mis-matched dishes at the tables.I can't remember if this was one of the shops that also served tea or if this display was just showing the dishes.
Yes, that's me reflected in two mirrors!
So much to look at! I'm sure I saw a fraction of what there was.
All the rain we've been having has raised the water level in the lake considerably. The water comes right up to the benches now. We had a wind storm as well as rain last night with a short power outage. I expected to see downed trees this morning but only saw the occasional branch that had fallen. Now the rain, which held off for a good part of the day, has resumed and it's not at all pleasant. A good evening to stay inside where it's warm and dry!
