The Getaway (From Way, Way Back)Posted: August 12, 2016
A long, long, long, long time ago, I shared some country breakfast recipes with you and hinted that my sister and I were about to set off on a weekend getaway. Life threw a few little hurdles our way following that trip, but at long last I present to you photos and stories from the way, way back getaway.
Tallulah and I joined our humans at Butler Greenwood Plantation and Bed and Breakfast in St. Francisville, Louisiana, for three glorious days in June. This was my fifth visit to the pet-friendly B&B (you can click here to read about my third visit three years ago) and my little sister’s first visit. Butler Greenwood is one of my all-time favorite places in the world, and I was so excited to share it with Tallulah. I started her weekend with a little ghost story. Take a look at that upstairs window. What do you see? Looks a bit like a ghost, doesn’t it? I tried to convince Tallulah that Butler Greenwood is haunted. I thought that would really scare her . . .
. . . and that’s when I learned that nothing scares Tallulah. So we continued with our tour of the grounds–which included lots and lots and lots of sniffing–before settling into our cottage for the evening.
The next morning we were up bright and early. Tallulah and I had tasty bacon, egg, and cheese treats to eat and my humans had a breakfast casserole to enjoy. (My apologies for not sharing a photo of the cooked human casserole with you, which I promised to do in my “BONE Appetit: Country Breakfast Two Ways” post. The casserole photos were a casualty of my human mommy’s computer meltdown following our getaway.) After breakfast, we hurried out the door so we could get in a little exploring before the rains came.
Tallulah chose to spend the rainy afternoon working on her spoiled rotten girl bed sleeping skills . . .
. . . while I tried out some new hairstyles. I kind of like the retro spiky punk look, don’t you?
And when Tallulah wasn’t being spoiled rotten on the giant king-sized bed, she was plopping herself in front of the air-conditioner so she could soak up the cool air. I’m telling you, my little sister is all about her personal comfort.
The end of our weekend in the country came way too soon. Tallulah and I thanked our daddy–as only a couple of four-legged daddy’s girls can–and hinted that we’d like to return to Butler Greenwood for another getaway when the weather’s a bit cooler. I think Daddy got the hint.
