Bandstand, Lunch Out and Fascicularia Bicolour

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.

Coming away, the brilliant red and blue Fascicularia Biclour in Queen Mary Gardens are in flower. They are like something from another world.

Brunch, Paper Flowers and Post Box

We love having brunch in Caffe Concerto before we spend the day in The Royal Academy. Today I had Eggs Benedict – delicious!

This is the rose that was on our table.

In the Burlington Arcade there were hanging bouquets of beautiful paper flowers.

Along the street I noticed a very interesting plaque on a post box.

Given yesterday’s post – I smiled at a dozen strangers today and eleven smiled back. Three stopped for brief cheerful conversations. I was very happy with that!

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.

Birthday Lunch, Pendennis Castle and Skyline

1   We had a lovely lunch at The Cove in Maenporth to celebrate the birthday of a good friend. Our dessert was truly scrumptious!

Breakfast, Bees and Lettuces

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.

Beautiful breakfast!

New Horses, Greeting and The Meadery

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!
