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

  13. Oh Happy belated Birthday I was so fixated on the first photo and wiping the drool off my chin I am sorry I could barely focus on the rest of the photos.
    I did manage though and they were wonderful. Love the water wheel. B
