Charming Historic District
Recently, I swung by Heather’s to order a latte. Parking was not a problem on the quiet street. Sure enough, the moment I walked through the door, two baristas greeted me with friendly smiles! I was only second in line and soon had my hot coffee in hand. The weather was warm for this time of year, so I chose a table on the patio. Such joy to sip a delicious latte in the fresh air with cardinals flitting among the branches of a nearby tree! Golden leaves of autumn glowed here and there where a breezy shower the night before had affixed them. Even though I had gone alone on this occasion, I felt I was in the company of others. I could easily imagine the conversations that had flowed between friends who had sat where I was sitting earlier that morning and who would arrive there later that day. After all, few pastimes are more fulfilling than getting together for coffee at a pleasant café. I felt snugly content, much as a kitten might feel when lapping a splash of cream from a saucer. Gradually, the idea stole over me that I could be sitting within a Christmas card scene with the bright red birds, the light green shrubbery, the shiny black tables, and the bright white cream floating atop my cup of coffee.
My camera could not capture all the blissful elements I just mentioned. As the saying goes, “You would have to have been there.” … and I hope you will be, as Heather’s is worth many a visit!
