Hello lovely people! Here I am again. I haven't joined the T-party for a while now as I have been travelling and we didn't have internet everywhere. But we are back now. It's good to be home again. Good to be in the sun again. Good to sleep in my own bed.
No postcard today from me. I haven't received any while I was away (I put my Postcrossing account on hold).
As it's T for Tuesday, I would like to share something drink related. When we were in the UK we visited many old friends and one couple of friends (C &D) took us out for lunch at the golf club in Farringdon (Somerset) which was about a mile from where we were staying. It was a lovely place with fantastic views:
Here is hubby (with hat) with C&D enjoying the view:
We ordered and didn't have to wait long for our order to come through:
Me on the left, then C opposite my hubby and lastly D.
Hubby had ordered a traditional pie with chips. We can't get this sort of fare in Spain.
The chips (US:fries) were really delicious.
Mine was a Cesar salad, but it was the strangest looking Cesar I have ever had:
The two 'lumps' were a sort of potato salad with perhaps a hint of chicken. There were two bits of ham and lots of anchovis. The yellow things are crackers and the lettuce is covered with a drizzle of yogurt. It might be typically English, but I usually have real chicken, croutons, Parmesan shavings and a special Cesar Salad sauce on a bed of lettuce. Needles to say I was disappointed. So we decided to have our dessert and coffee elsewhere.
We drove to Bath (an ancient Roman town East of Bristol) and visited the Bath Mill:
A gorgeous place. We all admired the lamps as we came into reception:
Further in there were more hats:
I took this picture from where we were sitting:
And to the other way:
Here is a close-up of the quote:
I think Jane Austen used to live in Bath.
I was so busy taking pictures that I forgot to photograph what we had for dessert, but here is a shot of what was on offer in the line of cakes:
The gardens are beautiful. It used to be a camp site and we had camped there with our motorhome(RV) only last year. Here is hubby enjoying the gardens:
I realize this has become a rather long, photo heavy blog post but I do want to share what I have been reading. I've read loads of books on my Kindle while on holiday, but this one was quite unforgettable:
I loved it. It is beautifully written and is 530 page long. When books are that good I don't want them to end. So 500 odd page is good.
Well done if you are still with me. I'm going to link up with dear Elizabeth and Bluebeard at T for Tuesday. Want to join me? Just include anything with a drink in it.
Have a good week everyone and keep smiling,
