The male DG blogged yesterday about an ode to an optic (although some of us think it should have been an ode to Lily). So, the female DG today notes an ode to the dying art of real afternoon tea. On one of the hottest days in the Bay Area in years (over 100 on the Peninsula), the women of Trinity gathered at the home of the Rev. Frannie Hall Kieschnick to welcome their new rector’s wife, Kate Dutton-Gillett for a traditional afternoon tea. What’s that mean? Real tea sandwiches, real scones, real tea in a multitude of fanciful tea pots – and hats dusted off from the back of closets. Given the heat, many attendees opted for water or lemonade.
