Gift of Time by Liz

I have been working for Adamstown Inns & Cottages since May of 2009 and am in my senior year at Elizabethtown College. I am studying Business Administration with a concentration in Entrepreneurship because I would like to own my own B&B one day. This semester I am starting an internship with Adamstown Inns & Cottages as the assistant innkeeper. Over Christmas break, I was given the chance to discover what Lancaster has to offer and would encourage you to do the same.

We all know that time is precious and that it is becoming more difficult to get together with friends and family members during our busy lives. Therefore, this Christmas I chose to give “time” to my mother and my boyfriend for their presents.

Since my mother loves shows, I took her to see “Annie” at the Fulton Opera House. Only 30 minutes from the Amethyst Inn, this is a beautiful theater. Every performance that I have seen there has been phenomenal! There is no bad seat in the place, and the actors have you hooked from the very beginning.

After the show, we had dinner at the Black Horse Restaurant in Adamstown, only two minutes from Adamstown Inns & Cottages. We started the meal with lobster risotto, which was a wonderful preview of how delicious the rest of our meal would be. I had crab cakes while my mother had salmon. The food was delicious with bursts of many different flavors and even the portions were perfect. I left feeling full, but not stuffed like in many restaurants. The ambiance in the restaurant added to our dining experience and allowed us to have a nice mother/daughter evening together.

If you enjoyed reading about this outing, then stay tuned for my second gift of time this holiday season!
