Enjoying the day

We got to church early for a change.  Had our pick of seats.
I grabbed a bulletin as my family chose the spot.  The middle, right in the center is where we planted ourselves.
It didn't take long and so did someone else.  Plopped herself right next to us.  Her name is Kathy.  We liked her right away.  A grandmotherly type, she took to our daughter immediately.  Asked her lots of questions and told her she is "such a pretty girl."  She noticed I was looking at a bulletin and said, "How did I miss getting a bulletin?" and stood up to retrieve one.
I piped up, "you can have mine" and handed  it to her.
That one kind deed meant so much to her.  We made a new friend.

We were on our way home and decided we needed to linger a bit longer.  Enjoy this beautiful day together.
We managed to snag a table outdoors at a restaurant  we had never been before.   There is always at least an hour wait.  Judging by the amount of people standing in line as we were being seated, we made it just in time.  

We had a great view.  Couples walked hand in hand along the pier, boats floated past, and smells of Sunday brunches wafted in the air,   The cool breeze took us by surprise and we wished we had brought our coats!
Good thing they had tea!
We finished our meal and needed to make one more stop.
Nothing like the nostalgia of an old fashioned  candy store.    This screamed, "EAT ME GAIL."
And so I did!

Do you prefer indoor or outdoor seating?
