    you’re a hoot! and i think you’d look fab in that garment having tea in that gorgeous place.
    we are experiencing a boom in micro breweries too.

    beer and bison…sounds very non-extravagant and quite yummy.

      Velma -yup! bison has become popular and this area is becoming well known for small micro- breweries with an endless selection of handcrafted beer and English style pubs.

    Sounds like a great day. I’ve never gone for tea at the Empress, I’ll really have to do it sometime.

      Heather – I’ve been several times over the years but the best was with my daughter-in-law’s Brownie group for a Princess tea. It was magical!
