Afternoon tea at the Midland Hotel,

I'd always wanted to come here....breathe in the Art Deco feel of this glorious newly renovated building.. and enjoy afternoon tea, looking out at the sea. It was wonderful! Blazing sunshine.. glass, quietness, elegance. crisp laundered tablecloths and napkins, endless curving glass windows and vistas, chrome 3-tiered cake plates and pastries to die for, plus the most exquisite thin strips of sandwiches ...with the crusts cut off, of course. And..scones and jam and cream and endless teas from white teapots. Mmmm.

Trouble was the sun was so bright and hot I could barely see to draw.. but did I care!!!
