It’s one of my favorite weeks of the year. That between Christmas and New Year’s. The kids are out of school and home for the most part. Work has slowed down in anticipation of the rush that occurs after the first of the year. It’s mostly about tidying up last minute year end items and just enjoying friends and family, and just plain taking a breather now that the end of another year is fast approaching.
A wonderful place to do that is on the back patio of Julie’s Coffee & Tea Garden. I just love the private garden atmosphere tucked away off the hustle and bustle of Park Street. After a morning appointment or two, to be able to pick up a small pot of tea, some to nibble on, carry it to the back patio, and relax in their garden, is a wonderful respite.
If you haven’t been there yet, Julie’s is located at 1223 Park Street in Alameda.
