Today was gorgeous on the Oregon coast. It was sunny and warm, and you'd never guess it was January. It was the kind of day we would be happy to have in June or July. My dog Stella was delighted to have a long walk on the beach, chasing balls, barking at other dogs and sniffing giant piles of driftwood left over from a recent storm.
My Mom and I had afternoon tea at Lovejoy' in Florence. It's a lovely little tearoom that feels authentically British and has delicious food. The pineapple petit four was amazing!
