This afternoon my weekend wanderings took me to a place in Brunswick called Mary Eats Cake. We were there to try out their high tea.
Weekend Wanderings – High Tea
My youngest daughter and I do this every couple of months with a friend of hers along with her mother. We love high tea and one of the best things about it is that there are good options for vegetarians. My daughter and I are the vegetarians.
We try new places every time we go in an effort to find the best one. I had never heard of this place before, but the name of it really grabbed me. I did ask if there was a Mary, and was told it was a play on the saying from Marie Antionette, Let Them Eat Cake. That was pretty cool. Names can be so interesting.
The food was great. At first, we weren’t sure we would like it, but it was spectacular. So good. It was a very noisy place and if you have trouble hearing then I wouldn’t go there. There is nothing to absorb the sound so it just goes around and around. I found it hard to hear people talking.
Going out for high tea is fun and taking photos of it is good too, but seriously I wasn’t going to drag my big camera there with me. It seemed like a fun thing to do today to just use my phone. As I said the other day, I have the Google Pixel 3XL and the camera in it is meant to be amazing. It is. So far I’ve tried it for quite a few things and the photos have been amazing.
For the afternoon it seemed like a fun thing to do to just snap some photos with it when I thought of it. All the photos here were taken with the phone.
While I’m not opposed to post-processing, never, I thought it might be nice to just show you how the photos were straight from it. The only thing I’ve done to them is resize them.
Not a lot of photos were taken, but here is selection for you to see what it looked like. I should have taken the Strumen lenses with me, that would have been so much better. Oh well, next time.
Enjoy your weekend.
