Last November I stayed in Opengate Retreat Centre on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne.
I took this picture on my phone as soon as I arrived:
After a morning walk around the tiny island in the wind and the rain, a seat by the fire in Pilgrim’s Coffee shop was much appreciated:
Closer to home, another great place to enjoy coffee and cake after a walk is in this outdoor area of our nearby Cartford Inn:
Or if it’s too cold to sit outside at the Cartford, there’s always a bar stool indoors:
My final picture has nothing at all to do with any of the above, but I do remember the thrill of being lifted up onto an empty seat on a carousel many years ago. As soon as the ride started, I thought we were galloping at the speed of light! A child’s imagination knows no bounds.
With thanks to Xingfumama for her Pull up a Seat Challenge Week 45.
Challenges like these get me thinking “out of the box” and send me on nostalgic journeys through old files. This is especially appreciated as we, in England, enter a four week lockdown due to Covid-19.
Stay safe everyone!
