Hamilton/Wenham, Quick 25 miles

Saturday's ride will be remembered more for our breakfast destination than the ride itself! The gang headed off for Hamilton/Wenham and the Wenham Teahouse -- a new breakfast destination. At Larch Row, the group split with some heading down Walnut Road to 1A, while a few of us took a side loop out to Miles River Road before turning back on 1A towards Wenham. It was a great day for a ride!

At the Wenham Teahouse, we enjoyed our most elegant breakfast to date -- bone china, fine silver, porcelain teacups, white tablecloths... It was a little obvious we were out of our element, (the cloth napkins and white tablecloths should have been a giveaway), but the waitstaff was very welcoming and didn't suggest that we eat outside on the patio. Service was a little slow, though we enjoyed the mini muffins and abundant coffee (and great conversations) while awaiting our food. We left after paying our bill (in a music box!) with smiles all around. Many laughs today and a quick 25 miles.
