Sorbet and Chocolate! All in One Day.

                                                   Day Two at the Greenbrier

I woke up in that so comfy bed and just lay there enjoying the pleasure of just BEING and being at this place, as well. Finally I picked up my Kindle and read a chapter in "Best Self", a book I am currently reading. It's written by Mike Mayer, a life coach and I am finding it very informative and helpful. I am always trying to figure out who I am now. You do that when you become a widow, I think.

My tummy finally gets me out of bed. So, I headed out in search of the Main Dining Room. Well, I thought I ended up in the right place .. It certainly looked MAIN to me.



but the next morning, I did have my breakfast in the Main one. This one had a buffet set up... oh my gosh... everything your heart desires. My favorite thing was the mini pumpkin-walnut muffins. Wish I had that recipe. 

There was a nice, warm fire going....


I guess you can figure out that I enjoyed my meal and the atmosphere! 

I really wasn't hungry when lunchtime rolled around. So, what do I do?

I go back to Drapers to their adorable ice cream/soda shoppe

and I get a dish of lemon sorbet.


Sitting on that stool, just taking in the ambiance of the moment, the place, the independence. 
It was great. 

Just outside of Drapers there was a sitting area and to the side of that was a fenced in place maybe 9'x9' and enclosed was this mouth-watering display.

And, be sure to read this sign which was placed next to the fence.


That's a ton of CHOCOLATE!!

(more on Day Two later)

  2. Wow, that is amazing! I would never have guessed that they were all made of chocolate. I wonder what happens to it all after the holiday season has passed? That dining room and breakfast buffet look amazing as well. Can't wait to hear more.

  6. You had to feel quite pampered. Now that is a bunch of chocolate. Maybe they donate it when the season is over.

  7. What a beautiful place! And that chocolate display is something else. I do wonder what they do with it after Christmas. Do you know? If it's 100% edible, then they should raffle pieces of it off, donate it, or let children loose on it!
