We went away for a couple of days to Jefferson, Texas. It’s only three hours east of us and about half an hour from Phat’s old stomping grounds. We stayed in a Bed and Breakfast known for its ghosts, most notably a cat.
All the rooms were luxuriantly decorated with period antiques. Our room was a soothing blue and white Victorian complete with a four poster bed and romantic canopy. It even had a private bath (a must for me when staying at a B&B — have you seen the “Everybody Loves Raymond” episode?).
Although I could have taken pictures of the historic district with all the shops and museums, and I should have taken pictures of the inside of our B&B, I was mostly enchanted by the homes in the area.
I hope you enjoy seeing Jefferson through my eyes. We seem to come away from these visits wanting to live in a small town. This visit was no different. A quiet, peaceful setting…covered porches with rocking chairs…tall oaks and piney woods…I feel myself being called away…
