As you know, Sisters and Brothers, The Chocolate Cult had its first official Pilgrimage this past weekend on Saturday, November 14, 2009. Your Chocolate Priestess chose the Brown County Humane Society's Chocolate Walk in Nashville, Indiana. This was their second year and after discussing what they do at that particular humane society and the background of this fundraiser with their coordinator, Heather, whose picture you will see today, I decided it was a worthy cause.
Getting to Nashville is almost a straight east shot from where we began that morning. There had been an accident earlier on this simply two lane road and it backed up traffic for about ten minutes. Since we left a bit early and since mavido was a good driver we arrived in plenty of time to find parking. We didn't know exactly where the start was but we found a free parking spot at the southwest section of the town. Unfortunately for our beginning, the start point was at the furtherest eastern point of the laid out walk.
We took this opportunity to look at the booklet for the event and plan out the rest of our day so we could start off fresh again at around 12:30pm or so. Little did we know that the crowds were going to explode on us slowing our progress down and sometimes creating waits in line for up to ten minutes at one point. But I'll get to that later this week as I continue to share with all of you, who should have gone if you lived in the region, so you can see how The Chocolate Cult's First Pilgrimage went.
Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
