Peace, quiet and air raid sirens...

As I mentioned before, this weekend we went away to a B&B in Berryville, VA. The place we stayed at is called The Lost Dog and is run by a nice couple Sandy & Jim.

We arrived a little late on Friday, and when we got there they showed us to the room and invited us down to share a glass of wine and chat. We talked for about 90 minutes, then we decided to go out to eat. Warning, don't go to Mario's Pizza in Berryville, the pizza was very bland, no taste to it whatsoever.
That night we found out about the Berryville volunteer fire department. In this age of computers, instant messaging and cell phones, when there's an emergency they blow an air raid siren 3 times. This happened 4 times between 11 and 1am, which we were told the next morning is very unusual for Berryville.
The next day we got up to a very filling breakfast - freshly home baked cranberry muffins, waffles, and eggs. Then we headed up to West Virginia for the white water rafting (see previous post). Last night we went to a seafood place that was having a live blues band at 9pm, since it was only 7pm we decided to go back to the lost dog and rest up for a little while... by the time 9pm rolled around the white water rafting had caught up with us, so we just stayed in the room and relaxed.
This morning I found out that when the clocks change, the time on my Verizon cell phone doesn't, until I either turn it on an off, or make or receive a call. The alarm went off at 7.30, looking at the clock I saw it was 8.30, which is when breakfast is served. 5 minutes later we were sitting downstairs for a nice cup of tea, a mini-quiche, and bisuits (fluffy scones) with award winning blueberry jam... mmm lovely. At 11 am we bade Sandy and Sirius (the labradoodle) farewell, and headed home. All in all a nice relaxing weekend away.
