    Lunch at the Three Pigs

    May 11, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    It was a dreary cold day, so we moseyed on down to the local pub for an English pub lunch. The Three Pigs was cozy and we warmed ourselves at a fireside table. We chose the chef's special of steak and Stilton pie, peas and chips, along with real ale, pumped from the keg.

    The ale was Muck and Straw from a local brewery. There is an organization that must give its stamp of approval for an ale to be called "real." Something about traditional methods, no added carbonation, etc. Though it was not quite up to the Belgian standard, it was a tasty accompaniment to our traditional English food fare.Read more

    Chapel Downs Barn

    May 7, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    After a hair-raising drive on the wrong side of the road we arrived at Chapel Downs Barn. The photo shows our HUGE bedroom in the loft of the old grainery. There is a whole beautiful open-plan apartment below. The first photo is the view from our bedroom. The other landscape is out the ground floor window.

    We thought we were coming to Cornwall, but it turns out we are a bit north in Devon. Devon? Heyyyyy ... isn't that where Devonshire cream, the lucious clotted cream served on scones with jam in cream tea, comes from? Well here's a clue: the local grocery store had about 6 brands. Guess what we're having on our toast in the a.m.? We MIGHT not make it out of here to Cornwall.

    The Devonshire cream is not the only plus for being here in jolly old England. I commented this morning on how happy the birds sounded. Gordon said, "Yes. They're happy because they understand what everyone is saying cause everyone is speaking English."

    EEK!

    May 7, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    We knew they drove on the wrong side of the road over here but actually driving on it is little challenging. Gordon and I are both inexplicably running off the road to the left.

    Oh how bucolic. But where's the road! Some places we were hard pressed to squeeze even ourselves through.
