Ladies Who Tea

5-2-teas2

Forgive the non bike-related post, but I can tie it to cycling by mentioning that later today I will be riding in Chicago’s inaugural Tweed Ride, so I feel like reminiscing about how Trisha and I recently were proper ladies in London having tea at Claridge’s. Well, okay, as proper as two sailor-mouthed Americans taking digital photos of themselves at fancy restaurants can be.

Pink puff on the left is the best sweet ever!  We had two.

    Sailor-mouthed?!? I must jump in and say that I was the picture of refinement. Taking a picture of the ladies’ room is classy, right? ;) That was a good afternoon. Must learn to make rose-raspberry macaroons, stat.

    Chicago has a Tweed ride now?? Wish they had one in San Diego or SoCal.

    Have fun!

    That’s cool! When I was there, I had a fancy dinner at restaurant on Park Lane near Hyde Park. I was there for a charity benefit, and it was truly ‘white-glove’ experience. Def feel special!

    Those desserts look so tasty! Yum yum!
