The bed is this huge bed fit for a king with luscious claret colored handings and the beautiful Queen dubbing Sir Lancelot painting at the head!

Our first course was this delectable strawberry cardamon soup!

This morning the soup was blackberry! I love the french vanilla coffee served in these larger than usual china cups!
The main course our first morning was hot ham and egg breakfast casserole, a banana and macadamian nut muffin, garnished with sliced fruit.

You can probably tell how delighted Lynn was with it all!
