Life is all about seizing the moment and being happy.

轻松小站

 

在GPS导航下,晌午时分,顺利抵达B & B轻松小站。。。

称它为轻松小站,是因为在那里度过了非常轻松愉快的两个夜晚。

它的独特住宿风格和浓厚的家庭气氛,和以前住过的B & B(Bed & Breakfast)有着不同。

I like this four poster bed ~~~

The "Ruby Room" decorated in a lush ruby style, has a romantic French flair about it.

And a bottle of Sherry is always there for sipping!

 

Mornings begin with a delightful "not- average- continental" breakfast

Coffee smells good, tastes good even I am very "picky" about coffee.

 

Colorful kitchen

 

Cheering and brighting our morning and mellowing and relaxing our late afternoon.

 

Anne’s Gift shop, the beautiful  glass-wares were hand-pained by Anne ( baked in the oven)

如果说,这里有一种在家的轻松随意感和对当地风情和风俗文化的新鲜感,那么,女主人Anne 一身的艺术细胞更是让我佩服不己。

然而,最大的好处莫过于,在和Anne 短短的交谈中,立即有效的获得了第一手资料,如对五指湖景点的路况(附地图)以及周边的交通、商店、饭店、等服务设置的情况。

真的是节省了一大把极其宝贵的时间!即便这些事先在网上有过“研究”,哈,终究是“纸上谈兵”,不实际。

在和这对夫妇闲聊中,两件乐事,现在想想都

Anne was so surprised by knowing that from Canada to China, the plane will fly over the north pole. She really considered a serious risk due to the "magnetic suction"…
We all burst out laughing…

Then her husband called himself as a daily-morning-tea person, drinking his favor green tea bag all the time until he compared a fancy tea ball that was a gift from LG, he was so impressed, said that it has so amazing taste! Of course there is a big difference between these two kind of tea …

Well, I didn’t tell him that tea bags are generally made from tea that is too-low quality to sell in bulk, just don’t want to "upset" him.

有时觉得老美们真的可笑 呵~~~

    从照片上看,这里真的很像家,尤其是厨房的布置,好亲切。
    看来老美对茶的认识远不如英国人哦。

    苓儿他喜爱绿茶在四方街邻颇有些名气呢,可这么一比较,不免。。。* _ ^。不过这夫妇俩到挺有善的。一般讲,老美们比较自大、比较狂放,好像整个世界就它一国。也不关心他事,闹出的笑话,多的去了。June真羡慕你窝在杭城,四季都美。希望从你的窗口看到更多的故乡。。。RussIf you are going to take a few days trip along the Finger Lakes, Probably an easy place to just relax and enjoy….

    想到多年前到加拿大美丽的东部(Halifax),也有美丽的人家,富有情趣的夫妇……。
     
    结果去了finger lake了吗?不错的地方。97年和老公开车去那里(第一次两人行),没想到罚款单跟踪到家里……
