Bedford Springs Resort.

And that is where I spent a few hours today … having lunch with my friend Jeanne.

Words cannot begin to describe this place … even in winter.

Here is a picture of the place from a pretty little gazebo across the road.

This was taken in the summer, obviously.But it doesn’t even start to show how wonderful of a place this is.

And heDSCN1053re is a picture of that pretty little gazebo taken from where we had lunch today.

This was taken in the winter, obviously. And it doesn’t start to show how wonderful of a place this is.

Of course the best part of it all was that I was having lunch with my friend.

This, as I have mentioned before, is someone I knew in High School … then we went to the same College together … and lived in the same dorm … on the same hall … and then there is something I did not mention.

Her daughter works at the Bedford Springs Resort.

So when she decided to come to town to visit her daughter, she called me and asked if I might be interested in driving there to meet for lunch.

Here is a picture from where we ate lunch … looking out onto the front of the Resort … toward the creek running along the front of the Resort.

And here are some more pictures of the restaurant we ate in and the rest of the Resort.

So you get the idea that I had a nice time today? You would be absolutely correct.

Between catching up on old times, and chatting about new times … she is an accomplished actress … we enjoyed a most amazing lunch.

This is the kind of restaurant that has prices … but no period at the end … and no decimal points. I believe I mentioned places like that before.

But in addition to delectable salads with excellent presentation, our server came to us at the end and said the magic words … “Will you be having dessert today?”

In the midst of our deliberations … she returned … with the most outstanding dessert known to man.

OK … maybe it’s because I am a sucker for caramel and whatnot.

Behold … the muffin.


We enjoyed the most wonderful muffin I have probably ever eaten. Courtesy of her daughter.

A delicious light fluffy cake muffin, with a huge gooey center of soft caramel goodness, topped with the best icing ever – caramel, of course – and a neat chocolate straw and chocolate covered caramel piece of candy.

Perfect. Not too sweet. Not too sugary. Perfect.

So after we finished lunch and did a tour of the facility, I did what any red-blooded woman who loves this sort of stuff would do …

Yes, the picture is of a muffin … sitting on my desk.

Yes, I did bring one home.

No, I can’t take another picture of it.

It’s history.

Blissful, icing coated, caramel encapsulated history.

With milk.

I am happy.
