The Human and a friend had a very ladyified afternoon this week when they went to Afternoon Tea at the Ritz-Carlton hotel downtown. Ordinarily, the Human schlumps around in neighborhood cafes and her own kitchen, but once in awhile, everybody's gotta dress up and act fancy.
They had to climb a Big Hill to get there. This picture, looking back toward Union Square, provided a good excuse to stop and catch her breath.
The hotel looks like a bank from the outside (and you'd probably have to rob one to stay overnight), but there was a pretty tree!
Now here's an oddity. Just inside the main doors were these glass jars filled with unshelled nuts. A nutcracker was thoughtfully provided, and it seems someone had cracked herself a nut or two, but it wasn't the Human or her friend!
Right inside the main doors was tree #2.
This nice man played soothing little background music while the ladies consumed their tiny treats.
And speaking of tiny treats . . . .
After two hours of ladyfication, the Humans headed for home, pausing to take this slightly blurry shot of the BofA building behind the hotel.
And thus ends our 11th Not-A-Garden-Tour--Hope you enjoyed it!
(Did you notice the appalling Lack of Kittehs? Yeah, me too. People never take the kitty anywhere, do they? I mean, I woulda liked me some a them little sandwiches, you know.)
