Travel and Tea

As you know, I always look for tea rooms and hotel afternoon teas when we travel.
The best I could do on our trip to Abington,VA was to have tea with breakfast at The Martha Washington Hotel.
The photo below depicts the first course of  breakfast. 
The second course included a typical American breakfast of bacon and eggs,
with the southern addition of biscuits, gravy, and a very delicious cheese grits


Yes!  There is a tea room in Abingdon.
is located in a historic home on Main Street.
Unfortunately, we were there on Monday, and they were not open.   
I called for Wednesday reservations hoping we could stop on our return from Roanoke,
but they were completely booked.    
Hmm, I need to remind GJ to schedule his business meetings around tea room hours.

Sounds like a nice trip...sorry the tea room was booked, but on the other hand it is so nice to know they are busy..keeps them in business which is so important!
