Clare Ington came to visit Joe-Lin Station B&B on the weekend of our 3-day Culture Days event. At first she was very calm – she spent the evening sitting in our Throne chair watching all the preparations for our Culture Days event.
Eventually though she said she was getting tired, so we put her to bed in the Cozy Twosome room. Clare wound the evening down watching TV and drifted off to sleep.
Everything went well on Friday – Clare was a perfect lady. She listened to the Genealogy discussion, learned about pumpkin seed oil and even tried her hand at silk dyed eggs. She had a busy day Saturday meeting the Boston Pizza mascot Lionel (we think she kind of liked him). He was so handsome eh?
… and she watched the artists’ paint, singers sing and horse riders ride. All in all an exhausting day!
