High Tea...

So the Highlands was way fun again this Thanksgiving.

On to the pictures...

It's chilly in the Highlands and basically exactly like Thanksgiving weather in Florida (highs in the low to mid-70's). Since Justin and Daniela and both of us are all from Florida, the cool, sunny weather was exactly right to make it feel like Thanksgiving (even though we ate Tacos for Thanksgiving dinner!)
Here's Justin getting ready to enjoy a nap under a blanket. The Highlands is famous for its flowers. Roses galore! Anthony bought these for me (and it only cost him $3.50!)We tried out a restaurant listed in a Lonely Planet guide. The food was decent, but we thought one of the wall-hangings was funny... click on the picture to read...One of the things I like to do is get my hair washed/styled while there. It's a fun outing (you get a scalp, neck, and shoulder massage...divine lemme tell ya!) and this time Daniela and Mrs. Guru came with me. We all have curly hair, so it was nice to have it blown-dried straight (and the cool weather meant it STAYED straight 'til we washed it again!)The K's had fun at their tree-swing...its in some of the woods near the place we stay. They made it a while ago and play on it everytime they come.
We went with Justin and Daniela to a Honey Bee Farm. The Highlands is also famous for it's honey. The entrance was free...and the nice Chinese lady at the gate reminds you not to "pluck" any of the flowers or touch the bees. Seems like the bee-part is self-explanatory.Since the bees were mostly in the boxes away from the sidewalk, it was nice that they had ginormous cartoon bees to make the pictures more interesting.

And here's a video... we're thinking of submitting to National Geographic just in case they'd want to use it in some kind of stinging insect documentary.

Hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving. Let us know if you want to join us next year in the Highlands!

1. The picture of the ladies after hair appointments looks like an Olan Mills portrait...shoot.
2. The tourists prayer is HILARIOUS and so appropriate.
3. The ginormous cartoon bees look like they were stolen straight from Disney. Just like home...sniff*sniff*
4. That is all...

the video is great. and well, being an expert on National Geo as of late, I think you've got a real shot there. It's definitely up there with MegaMovers. :)
