First stop was some fuel for Kim. The girl has these running through her veins....
Next we headed down into the central San Joaquin Valley to a town called Lathrop. Never heard of it, well I bet your have heard of this.

We then headed over to the west side of the valley to a little city called Pleasanton to a shop called English Rose. It is featured in the Tea Time Magazine July/August issue on the stands now. Here is a peek of the shop, their outdoor seating area and our sumptuous tea.

The English Rose Tea Shop
Our next stop - In Between Stitches a Quilt Shop in Livermore, California.
They were chosen one of the top 11 quilt shops in the latest Quilt Sampler Magazine.
In Between Stitches
I will save the funny stories for Kim i.e., her managing to go through a red light and other assorted tales. It was a wonderful day, with a wonderful friend. (Although she still can not get over me suggesting a Raw Food Restaurant.... :o)
Still smiling here. We got home in one piece (thanks to Kim's driving.) Chocolate, a tea and wondering around an excellent quilt shop with a friend - It Was A Good Thing!
PS - I am trying something new with Smilebox. Please let me know if your are able to view them.
