Last Minute Escape

Emma from Silverpebble rang, she needed to escape, she wanted to try out Pomona's Little Cottage Comforts B&B did I want to go too?

We spent a few hours in Whitstable being tempted by the shops.

The sun shone so Emma stoically but gingerly, put one foot in the sea- I declined.

For lunch we ate fish & chips, liberally salted & dripping with vinegar.

The thunder clouds gathered so we quickly headed for Rifleman's Cottage.

There we met the lovely Pomona. (It was good to put a face to a name- also my first blog meet up!)

We sat by the fire & talked & talked...

We drank wine & talked some more.

We read.

We ate far too much gorgeous food.

We relaxed...(so much so that this out of focus photo sums up the evening)

The accommodation was great.

The next morning after a delicious breakfast (fantastic bacon!) Mr P gave us a tour of the permaculture system in the garden & attached land. As ever, I had 'garden envy'.

We even came home with a tray of apples, pears & plums from their garden.

It was pure escapism- Thank you Pomona & Mr P! (& Emma for suggesting it)

You are very welcome! It was lovely to meet you both, and thank you so much for my lovely lavender bags - much appreciated (especially the willow pattern one!).
