Massanutten Ski Holiday

This time of year I’m ready to go and lie on a beach somewhere, but…..pouring tea outdoors

hubby decided that he wants to go skiing one more time - before he gets too old.  I’m not talking cross-country good for all age groups skiing, but the (for the brave of heart only) downhill kind.

So we’re off to the Summit at Massanutten in McGaheysville, VA.  Other than the traveling, I don’t mind since there are many activities at this resort for the non skier.  My grandson is looking forward to snow tubing with Grandma and the indoor water park.

Grandma is looking forward to a gourmet dinner, digital photography class, and Zumba.  Maybe I’ll even visit the spa with my daughter.

We plan to stop overnight in Charlotte, NC.  Have any of you had afternoon tea at the Ballantyne Hotel?   I’m also planning to visit Mrs. Hardesty’s Tea Room in Harrisonburg, VA.

I’ll miss all your wonderful blog posts while I’m gone, but the catching up part when I get home is something to look forward to.

You'll be stopping in my area. I have not had tea at the Ballantyne Hotel. If it's like other things they do there I would think it would be expensive. I actually did not know they served tea there. I don't think this area is very good for tea these days. Most of the places have closed. :-(
Have a fun trip.

What a fun trip. It looks like the tubing center is amazing. I like NC and find the people very hospitable. I'm sure you will have a great time and can snuggle while your guy is out on the slopes.
