The Antelope....Farewell

As sad as this seems, after 6 years the AWC is leaving our old friend, The Antelope,  in search of a new pub.  One that can accommodate our growing number of ladies looking for  "Tea" on a Thursday afternoon.
   In the past we have hosted several going away parties and even a wedding party at The Antelope.  The manager happily added  Chardonnay and slimline tonic to the menu for us!  But with posh renovations comes the business of bookings and now we seem to be trying to find room for our social group.


Here are some photos of our last Afternoon Tea at the Antelope....February, 2013! Cheers!

Fe 'brrrrrr' uary!

This blog will serve as a reminder to head South in February.
I just happened to arrive a day before 'Nemo', that is the name the weather channel gave this winter storm that hit the eastern coastline and dumped 4 - 6 feet of wet heavy snow on the Rivah House.
Needless to say all construction came to a screeching halt when Norwell lost power for 4 days.

Tucker loved it....I did not!

With no heat, the house dropped close to freezing (and the CO2 detector went off), so Christy and Doug were nice enough to share their warm fire and they borrowed a friend's generator. Tommy's parents treated us to a warm shower and lunch. Tucker did not want to leave!

I left for Orange Beach to meet up with my Valentine..... the Norwell project hanging......

Only to begin another.... check out Sandi's blog for decorating detail!
