A great birthday weekend planned by MLE. We started out on Friday night with a gathering @ Courtneys to play some competitive Trivial Pursuit (Courtney, Kelly, Liz, Perry, Emily and myself). On Saturday, we headed up to Mineral, VA for a 2-hour horseback ride through the state park. We stayed at the Little Page Inn, built in 1805 and still owned by the same family. A great place with lots of old books from the 1800s, hard wood floors throughout and a stand-alone claw foot bathtub. We had dinner in Gordonsville at a tasty little French restaurant called Pomme. Sliced duck with orange sauce, escargot, wine and bread. We drove back on winding country roads on a rainy Sunday after spending the morning lazing about the Inn and cooking up an excellent breakfast (scrambled eggs, biscuits, grapefruit juice and an entire slab of bacon). Thanks for a great birthday weekend Emily!
