Sarah (future world traveler), Mrs. Schneider and me


Today Mrs. Schneider, Mrs. Stine, and I decided to take a “Polly Adventure”, so we jumped into the car early this morning and headed to Berkeley Springs, West Virginia–about a 45 minute drive from where we live.

After a fantastic morning of sightseeing we decided to get a bite to eat. We’d heard great things about Tari’s Cafe’, located in the heart of Berkeley Springs, so we decided to give it a try. As we were being seated, I recognized a familiar face at the table next to us. It was Sarah from school! I hopped right over and gave her a big hug, and boy was I happy to see her!



We were happy to see each other!



Sarah was eating lunch with her grandparents, her mom and dad, and her little sister. It was fun meeting all of them, and I especially enjoyed talking to Sarah’s grandpa. He was visiting from Miami, Florida but he’s originally from Germany, and he told us lots of interesting things about growing up in the city Wiesbaden. You better believe I perked right up when he started talking, after all, I’m a Travel Frog and I love to learn about new places!

Sarah has a very interesting family heritage. He grandfather on her mother’s side is from Germany (like I mentioned) and her grandmother came from Scotland. Sarah’s father was born in Italy and moved to America when he was twelve years old. I bet Sarah will love to travel when she gets older–it’s in her blood! (Hey, maybe that’s why I like her so much!)





So Good!


Well, the rumours were true…Tari’s Cafe’ was fantastic. We ordered the Oyster Poor Boy- cornmeal dusted fried oysters served on a crusty French baguette and served with crunch cabbage, diced tomatoes, and a zesty remoulade. Oh, I almost forgot…it was served with yummy cole slaw on the side. We enjoyed our meal immensely and our waitress Kiarra was great!

Sarah, It was so much fun seeing you today! Have a wonderful summer!

Love, Polly #3
