Mom and I stumbled upon the historic downtown distict of Auburn by accident, another charming gold rush town. We ended up spending a nice afternoon there. I love when the best things in life are unplanned sometimes. We found an old fashioned candy store, where we shared lemon drops and flavored honey sticks, one of my favorite childhood treats...
We popped into the Auburn Alehouse to try the Oktoberfest beer made 'in house'.
I rarely drink beer now due to a wheat allergy,
so it was a nice treat. I used to enjoy specialized brews every now and then.
(My all-time favorite is the Apricot Ale by Pyramid,
which I can't get anymore since it is made in Seattle.)
We had just eaten lunch, but since we stopped in... we decided to try the Shangai Beef Wraps.
Tea Thyme Treasues was one of my favorite shops in Auburn!
This "Afternoon Tea Parties" book is on my holiday list!
Isn't the tea cozy adorable too?
We stayed one night at my grandma's house...
her TV remote was such a riot!
Look how huge it is!!
I finally wore my new navy tights!
