Sharon's cooking is amazing and being made so welcome by her family is an experience I won't forget. We went for a drive on Saturday evening down to Salisbury beach and enjoyed the sunset. I wish I'd taken more photos of the gorgeous houses in the area.

The next part of my stay has been in Atlanta with Tom Webb. He's introduced me to some real Southern cooking. He made me eat grits, MADE me, I tell you.
In his words... I also "made" her eat fried green tomatoes, sweet potato casserole (which she already has had - some inferior British version), sweet tea SWEET SWEET, the BEST bread pudding, chicken and dumplings, collard greens and cornbread. Oh, and she had never had a cinnamon roll - blasphemy! And she loved...most of it.
I did. Except the sweet tea. Yuk! I liked the unsweetened version. Comes of having a diabetic dad.
I took the day off yesterday to write, and today I acted as a tourist, wandering around Piedmont Park and The World of Coca-Cola. I found a Starbucks (bliss) and crashed there for a while to read and write.

So to part 2.
Wish you were here too, Sue xx
