Tuesday Tale of Thanksgiving at.....

364 days a year it is, as the sign says, "Beefeaters Haven"

The Thanksgiving buffet at the Angus Barn is without a doubt THE BEST
It is well attended.  Reservations are coveted.  Last year we made our reservations for 2019
as we left.  This year we did the same.  It is decorated for Christmas but THAT IS OK.  When there are this many gorgeous decorations, they need to stay up as long as possible

Front door from a distance

up close

right of door lounge area is where you wait for your dinner bell to go off.
The have lots of cheese and crackers available too
 Just past the above photo

Now photos after we entered the lobby

While you wait for your buzzer to go off you can munch on 
their signature cheese and crackers here.

 First floor dining area...buffets are set up on each floor
No photos of buffet my hands were full of food.

I love this plaque with the verse on it.

Their library is where they have a most enormous and gorgeous tree and there are also
numerous trees all over A.B.

Yep it is decorated with cotton balls.  NC grows lots of cotton
 The expression on this man's face is priceless
he is looking at the  train track that is all around the ceiling in the library

Framed State Police patches from many states.  
 Pardon the blur it was bustling in there and I was on the steps.

I guess if you ate too much you can kick yourself!

It was an absolutely gorgeous day.

I have some more out door pics probably for a Nature Friday
