I just returned from a fun girls getaway! Three of my college girlfriends joined me for a weekend of sharing memories, shopping and farm living!! We stayed at Marydale Inn, a fantastic Bed and Breakfast.

I can not say enough good things about this B&B. The whole house was immaculate, the rooms and private baths were spacious, the beds were comfortable, the food was yummy, and the surroundings were peaceful. Mary Jo and Dale, the owners, were wonderful! It was PERFECT and I want to go back!
Here are the girls at breakfast on the first day. The peach smoothies were delicious! Crunchy bacon and German puff pancakes with strawberry topping followed.
All the furniture in my bedroom was Amish made.

The B&B is on a farm and they had newborn baby cows. Dale took us out to the barn to meet all the animals. I got to climb into the pen with 3 of the sweetest little calves. So exciting for a girl who lives in the suburbs!! And then we went down to the pond to toss food to the catfish.
There is a naming competition going on for this little fellow. Isn't he adorable?
We sat out on the deck at night and stargazed. You will not believe how many stars you can see in the night sky when you get away from all the city lights. So amazing.
Here are all four of us gals together on our last morning at the Inn. (Me- back row, in light blue.)
This post is too long already, so come back tomorrow to hear about our day in the Amish community of Jamesport.
