I discovered these photos today in the old archives. In these December doldrums, they made me long for warm weather. They were taken on a car trip two summer ago, on a route to North Carolina, and to the Outer Banks, then to Kentucky and onto Missouri. Magically that summer, our air conditioning vanished, and we traveled across the burning summer south in a mystical silver sauna. But we had a goal. Coffee. And stop at every much written about coffee den we did.
