Day 227 – Words Of Wisdom…

You can’t argue with the logic or the sentiment, even if it wasn’t that warm today! Sign outside a pub in Newport, Shropshire.

Day 167 – Lazy Sunday Afternoon…

Driving through Eccleshall this afternoon I noticed that with a little welcome sunshine, there were lots of folks around. This group were enjoying a drink at one of the many pubs and bars in town…

Day 166 – Duck or Grouse…

I love great food, and tonight’s dinner at The Hinds Head was no exception. A small family run pub/restaurant where everything is cooked to order – no pre-prepared catering here! And a bonus – there’s been a Gin Festival on in the village, and the pub has a better than usual range available, with special prices for doubles. What’s not to like!

Day 154 – No Room…

… at the Inn. The Corbet Arms was once a prosperous hotel in town, but fell on hard times and was derelict when we first moved to the area 11 years ago. The front half of the building has been renovated and houses the local Post Office and a small antiques business, but as you can see from this photo, the rear is still far from loved…

Day 130 – In The Pink…

Ignoring the forecast of rain, we walked a section of the South West Coastal Path in Cornwall today. Such beautiful scenery, enhanced by a colourful display of spring flowers, including this Pink Thrift. A nice walk, good friends, and a good pub for lunch – what’s not to like?

Day 125 – Looming Clouds…

This is the view from the top of Wenlock Edge, looking out towards Shrewsbury. With a few friends from the local tennis club, we enjoyed a 7 mile ‘sociable’ walk this morning – a gentle pace, with plenty of time for chatting. And then a visit to the local pub for refreshments! A great way to spend Sunday.
