Living the Highlife

Thursday I took a PTO and met a friend for a nice day out, started the right way by driving into down town Atlanta in her Audi TT Convertible, the wether was perfect. First stop was the Atlanta Mart, which is a trade only location to buy everything from jewelry to furniture and everything in between. As is was not a market day, not a lot of the stores were open but there was enough to tempt us and relieve us of a few dollars.

We then had a tour of the local area followed by lunch at an Atlanta landmark Mary Macs tea rooms . Established in 1948 and very little changed over the years. The food is not what I would have expected for a tea room, no cucumber sandwiches and scones with strawberry jam.  It was mostly heavy southern cooking but we found something to our liking and it was very well done.

We then stopped at another historic landmark, Henris Bakery , established in 1928. I bought Rob and slice of his favorite, bread and butter pudding. We rounded the day off by visiting an estate sale in Buckhead but managed to resist buying anything.
