Carolina Inn Tea Time

Hello everyone,
"Four Ladies Go Traveling" started our vacation having 
tea at Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
When planning our trip, I made reservations at 4:00 o'clock
for afternoon tea.  We checked into our room and when it was time for
 afternoon tea we entered this beautiful sunny room
Here is our table waiting for us to be seated.
The happy travelers enjoying afternoon tea in 
the beautiful tea room at Chapel Hill.
I love chocolate covered strawberries.
Sweet desserts.
Delicious tea sandwiches.
This is my place setting.
I am ready to enjoy tea time.
In the lobby and in the hallways are beautifully decorated 
china hutches and cabinets displaying different China
Before it was time for tea, I took a walk about the property of the
Carolina Inn.  Outside of the side area, a large tea party was set up for
an afternoon tea.
They serve world-renowned chocolate chip toffee cookies upon check-in.
The Carolina Inn is a hotel listed on the National Register of Historic Places on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in Orange CountyNorth Carolina, which opened in 1924. The Carolina Inn is a member of Historic Hotels of America, the official program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. (sourse)
We stayed one night in a luxurious room with two queen beds.
Here we are saying goodbye to Chapel Hill, and starting our road trip
to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you have enjoyed our afternoon
tea and a tour of the Carolina Inn.
