We decided lunch out would be good today after a month spent mostly indoors. We set off for the Princess Pavilion restaurant in the Gyllyngdune Gardens and though the bandstand was beautiful, the menu didn’t tickle our taste buds so we went on down to The Gylly Cafe.
That was a very good decision as I had one of the best lunches ever! I had their Mixed Seafood Platter which consisted of Crab claws, Scallops, Tiger prawns and Brill with a deliciously dressed salad. It was one of those meals that you just don’t want to finish and it did take a long time to eat being messily scrumptious.
We love having brunch in Caffe Concerto before we spend the day in The Royal Academy. Today I had Eggs Benedict – delicious!
In the Burlington Arcade there were hanging bouquets of beautiful paper flowers.
1 What good advice this is and today we have taken it!
2 We all had lunch in Porthleven and this was our dessert, Chocolate Brownie with Cherries and Pistachio Ice-cream. It was utterly delicious as was the rest of the meal.
3 Driving home through Cornish lanes with the sun streaming through the tress was another delight.
1 We had a lovely lunch at The Cove in Maenporth to celebrate the birthday of a good friend. Our dessert was truly scrumptious!
2 Across from Maenporth, the setting sun (it was a long lunch!) lit up the cliffs and the castle with a glorious golden glow.
3 The skyline as we drove away was very dramatic and lovely.
1 We met some lovely friends for breakfast this morning at Johnny’s in Hayle and thoroughly enjoyed our catch-up and our delicious meals. G had the American pancakes with mixed fruit and it looked fabulous! The Vegetarian Full English Breakfasts were also scrumptious. Click here and here for other posts about Johnny’s.
2 Bees are loving our last sunflower and getting quite dusty with the pollen.Click on the photo for the detail of the wings and the dustiness of the pollen.
3 Our lettuces are still flourishing and I just love the depth and the contrasts of the colours of the leaves. They taste good too!
1 We have two new horses in the back field. They don’t stand still for long but seemed to be interested in my taking a photo!
2 My brother and his wife are on holiday on Tybee Island getting away from the heat of Atlanta for a while. P sent me this from the beach.
3 We were taken out for a meal tonight by M and R as a thank you for their holiday – a really lovely treat. It was our first visit to the Meadery which was lots of fun. I liked this statement on the menu.
