After we were finished shooting, and said our goodbyes, Erin & I had a relaxing dinner at a bustling London restaurant. And it was there that I had a pivotal British moment! I tried my first Pimm’s. . . . yummy delicious! Many thanks to Erin McLaughlin for the impromptu portrait of me! I am usually on the other side of the camera.
I was surprised to learn that Pimm’s is hard to find in the United States. And so the find-the-Pimm’s-saga started. . . I checked my local ABC store and they told me that all the state liquor stores in each state carry the same items and no Pimm’s in North Carolina. I looked into ordering some online but the shipping was pretty expensive. Then we called liquor stores all up and down the eastern seaboard while driving to our assignment in Kennebunk, Maine (see post). Finally we had success in Virginia and then scored a couple more bottles in New Hampshire.
No one panic – I don’t have a drinking problem – the bottles are lined up in my pantry either awaiting a summer party or a really cool shoot!
