... Quite the experience! She ordererd a burger, and I ordered some cheese garlic fries with fetta. I wasn't really hungry, but felt like trying something new. The best part of Jack Asters, apart from the comics that line the walls and table paritions, was the brown paper tablecloths and crayons that are provided. Let the legal graffiti begin! Not a good place for a date I don't think, I could imagine spending the whole time drawing on the table!
... about. They're all so friendly and welcoming, looking forward to Sunday to meet all the rest of them!
I've tried six times to send the last two posts but my tablet refuses to upload the pictures. I'm on Courtney's laptop now and hoping it will work this time!

Such a beautiful B&B - a gorgeous home with beautiful woodwork, staircase and amenities. Everything is lovely here - the art, the home itself, the beds and oh, what a delicious breakfast!
