Day Out

Today I drove into Mt. Holly, NJ to meet up with my friend Ellen for lunch. We ate at The Robin's Nest, a small restaurant that is known locally for great food, set in the trendy Mill Race Village.
We enjoyed a nice meal with our conversation. Ellen is the president of the Mid Atlantic Fiber Association (MAFA) so I was able to get caught up on all the local weaving "buzz." It was so good to see her again. She always inspires me. Afterwards we looked for some shops to visit; unfortunately, however, many of the shops in Mill Race Village are only open Wednesday through Sunday so we were out of luck. But that was OK, because we walked up the street to Woolbearers and fondled some yarn as we continued to talk. It was nice to see Myra Rubens, the shop owner. I used to teach rigid heddle weaving at Woolbearers, so it was like visiting home.

As we were walking back towards our cars we came to Vincent's Homemade Ice Cream and decided to indulge. If you are ever in Mt. Holly, NJ you must stop in and taste their Dusty Road Sundae with malt. Yum!!

Perfect end to a lovely afternoon.
