Once our name reached the top of the list at Miss Marples Tea Room, we stuffed ourselves with shepherds pie and then devonshire tea for dessert (tea accompained by scones with jam and cream). The scones at Miss Marples look like huge carbohydrates bricks, but they're the best I've ever tasted. My friend and I also couldn't resist a famous ice cream sundae. The 'Vicar's Folly' was a tower of honeycomb ice cream with pieces of honeycomb and wipped cream on top. Yum!
We spent the afternoon walking off our lunch and visiting some of the town's clothes and antique stores. Sassafras is a quaint town that has blossomed into a significant tourist spot in the last year. The teacup and teapot shop next to Miss Marples is a real delight to wonder around. They have teas and tea accessories in all different flavours and styles, from English to Chinese. I fell in love with a huge floral grandma teacup, which accompanied me on the ride home.
