Excited... :-))))))

Above, is the Apple Pie I made for son-next-door-&-family, on Sat.

I'm so excited.  Found that I can pre-order a Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie for Thanksgiving!   

My next door daughter in law loves Pumpkin Pie, but she has to eat G/F, as I do.  I always make her a Pumpkin Pie, and she will just eat the filling.  Neither of us, can eat the old fashioned crust which I make, for my pies.

But this time, she can eat the whole thing!  And I will have something I can eat for dessert, on Thanksgiving too.

I'm used to just sitting by, while family has desserts and at Birthday Cake times.  But this will be nicer.  :-)

We went for an early dinner, on Sun., at the Olde Bryan Inn.

It is a restaurant with real ambiance.  In 1773 it began, as a crude log cabin on the bluff overlooking the High Rock Spring.

Down through the years, it has been improved and enlarged, and has been many "things."  A home, an inn, with a blacksmith shop nearby, a laundry, and again used as a home....  Before becoming the present Olde Bryan Inn.

We sat just across from this fireplace, one of 2 in this room alone.  Such a nice ambiance for a dark and rainy Sun. afternoon.

Here is a professional picture!  Doing it so much more "justice," than my little camera can, in the pics above.  :-)

And speaking of dark and rainy Sun., it was amazing that it was this way, with the Full Beaver Moon last night.  Usually, the Full Moon seems to bring clear skies.  Phooie.  Not last night...

Oh my gosh, just LOOK at the restaurant. And I prefer your photographs, the lights outside seem to wash away all the building's ancestry. How lovely to see an old building. I don't get homesick for England, but I do miss the constant contact with old things. That's why I build Hubby a Steampunk Study in the first place. Congratulations on the pie! I share your happiness and I'm awestruck that you still make other people pies, that you can't eat. You're a star!

What a fun dinner! I thought the moon last night was amazing. It kept peeking out of the clouds as we were driving home last night!

Glad you will be having pie this thanksgiving!

Your pie looks like it could win a prize at the fair! I would love to have an old inn like that in my town ... wonderful dark beams & that fireplace ... nice. Thanks for sharing all these photos Tessa. Wendy x

That looks like a really interesting place to eat and I bet that the food is good or people wouldn't keep going back. GREAT moon shot, Tessa- xo Diana

I personally hate pumpkin pie and don't understand why anyone would eat it. but since you seem to do, I'm glad you found one that works for the whole family...

ps: this place looks lovely.

What a beautiful inn. It reminds me of an inn I once had a meal at in Williamsburg, VA.
