SOMETHING TO DRIVE THE COLD WINTER AWAY
The weather outside so far this December is unusually cold and blustery! But the Inn is toasty warm and festively decorated and ready to welcome our winter guests. Recently while visiting my daughter Emilie out in their new home in Camus, Washington we had a special tea at the Heathman Hotel in downtown Portland. The weather was frightful there too! And it was such a nice break from our shopping to sit for awhile in this beautiful 1912 hotel.
We decided it would be just as nice to have a afternoon tea at Woodhaven. So during the months of December and January we are going to have a complimentary afternoon tea for our guests each Saturday from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. We'll serve some traditional tea sandwiches and scones with clotted cream, and three different dessert items. Also we will have great choices of tea from England and Elmwood Inn.
A couple of years ago I found this CD by Lorenna McKennitt called "To Drive the Cold Winter Away" I have it playing right now and it gave me the idea for this post.
