Lunch Out

Some friends decided to take me out for a belated Birthday Lunch

When asked where we were going
 where she pointed a finger
into the distance

I got my camera out and put the zoom
to see
the rock that looks like a lion resting
can you see it?

So we ended up at the mill that nestles
under the resting lion

     I've walked up there often when I was younger
         Can you see the rock amidst the trees?

             Treffgarne mill is a treasure house
                       for all sorts of tastes!

   We used to have an old horse drawn implement like       one of these until someone stole it

               Tea out of a brown china tea pot
                          always seems
                     to taste wonderful !

                   I was so hungry I forgot
             to take photos of our first course
     Mine is the first photo....hazelnut meringue!

     We wandered around the mill and gift shop

          And then had a look at the Mill Wheel
                          and stream......

                                             The path looked inviting
               but I just couldn't do it this time

                   Funny what you can find in odd corners!

         So we headed home and I looked up at the rock
                  (through a dirty windscreen!)

I'm joining Nancy at  Rural Thursday

and Beverley at Pink Saturday
