Fun Times ~

Yes, I’m still following all of the dismal news. However, I’m finding more and more that I must take breaks. For my own sanity. So the other day I got together with my friend, Sherry, and we had lunch at a lovely restaurant in Ormond Beach that we hadn’t been to before. I’m not sure why we’d never been but we will definitely return.

The Rose Villa was established in 1901 as a small addition to Henry Flagler’s Hotel Ormond. Important guests were able to have more privacy staying here.  Over the years the building fell to a state of neglect. But in 2007 it was purchased and transformed into the Victorian beauty it once was.

A lovely gazebo in the back provides dining and drinks al fresco during the cooler months.

The quaint dining rooms are beautifully furnished with custom wallpapered ceilings and walls.  And the period furniture adds to the decor. Sherry and I felt like we’d taken a step back in time . . . when kindness and graciousness prevailed.

I enjoyed a salad of fruits and greens along with a very nice glass of white wine. 

And following lunch we went to the movies to see, Paris Can Wait, with Diane Lane and Alec Baldwin.  It was the perfect movie for a fun day.  The scenery from Provence to Paris was beautiful, the food, the romance and the storyline uplifting, and the entire day was the perfect antidote we both needed.

Sometimes we just need to take a deep breath and we did exactly that the other day.

See you here next time…………….
