Deep in conversation while 6 week old Rebekah gets a cuddle from Sara
Grandma makes a Daisy chain for Oliver
With family gone Sara and I were relaxing after a long day when at about 9.0 pm on the evening before Sara left I realised that we did not have a photo of the two of us together. Every minute of our time had been taken up with getting to know each other, chatting and visiting the area that we almost missed this opportunity.
So, at a time of night when the last thing we wanted was to have a photo taken, we came up with this, one and only, taken in the pale evening light.
Sara will be posting many pictures of her visit to England over the coming weeks and has aleady posted a little taster.
As afternoon tea features a lot in our life in England, this was the Buttercream and Vanilla sponge that graced our last afternoon together in my home.
A couple of days later I was out there myself (with my camera this time) and took some random photos of areas of the grounds that I had not previously shown you amongst the numerous pictures that you can see by clicking on "Pilgrims Hall" in the sidebar.
So do come and walk around with me and we will then have afternoon tea in the dining room. This is a new venture we have just started - running an English tearoom and coffee shop (open to the public) on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Into the house for tea now. One has the choice of sitting outside, or sitting in the flower filled conservatory or as here in the dining room. This was the first day and over 50 people came for tea or a light lunch b ut it is almost closing time now. The cakes are all home made on the premises and are delicious.
