A Pleasurable Fall Outing

Posted by Carla on 10/19 at 09:03 AM


My Dearest Janes,

I have so many little matters to tell you of, that I cannot wait any longer before I begin to put them down. Our day began as we took tea fireside at the Aaronsburg Inn and we proceeded with friendly introductions to new acquaintances that were soon to be good friends.  The innkeeper was a very gentlemanlike, good-looking, pleasant young man whose manners were beyond reproach and we felt right at home indeed.

After a cozy chat about bicycling with all of the Janes, Miss W. presented the ladies with a brief and startlingly interesting lecture on the fall flora we might encounter on the day’s ramble. Then we each received a Ladies’ Leaf Guide as our Baedeker for the day and mounted our bicycles. 

Following some fresh air on our bicycles, we dismounted at the olde train trestle. It was an impressive site, which merited further investigation and we gathered leaves and consulted our Baedeker.  The sun warmed our backs and the exercise put a bloom in our cheeks. 

We liked our ride very much; it seemed shorter than we had expected, and the weather was delightful. We reached Bobbie’s Kitchen by noon; and were diverted beyond moderation by the delicious lunch and lovely conversation. 

After our brisk ride back to the Inn, we condoled a bit over our sore behinds and decided that an appropriate riding habit would be better for our next outing.  The yoga and massage was invigorating and the benefit I found from it was very great. I was quite surrounded by friends and I spent the greater part of the day very pleasantly with them. It was a glorious day indeed. With love to you all, I remain yours very affectionately,

Jane Austen couldn’t have said it better herself. Your correspondence certainly captures the day in all its autumnal splendor - shared with fine conversation and friends old and new.
