Tea Never Tasted Better

Ever since I've been traveling to the West Coast, a certain sister of mine would mention a trip to the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park. It never happened through at least a dozen trips out there.

Recently, I finally got to see it. The day before my youngest daughter was married at Point Bonita Lighthouse. Somehow, we got a few peaceful hours with her, and she mentioned taking us there. I jumped on the chance.

What a peaceful place to be, and tea never tasted so good. As we sipped our Oolong in the open air tea house we cradled our tea cups grateful for the warmth. For as I love to quote Mark Twain when I visit, no matter what time of year, "the coldest winter I ever spent, was a summer in San Francisco.--Ruth Mitchell
