So it’s National Walk To Work Week which is ok by me , as I do walk to work every day. I only live ten minutes away so I don’t have an excuse not to really! I start work bright and early two days a week so these photos were taken before 7am. I am actually glad of the fresh air as it does help wake me up!
I walk past nearby pretty terraces and past what would be my local if I was fond of Coweeoke.
And two restaurants that were probably full of bank holiday revellers the night before.All is quiet here at this hour.
I pass a Church and a rather strange side street sign. Once called Strang Stee ( I’m not sure why? ) some jolly soul has added more letters to turn it into Strange Steve.
And signage for a Beer Festival and a Music Festival.
I pass a little bridal shop and now i’m nearly there.
Though where I actually work, I’m not going to share. tee hee. 🙂
This post is for Day 3 of #BEDM devised by Elizabeth at Rosalilium.
Saturday was a marvelous day, as not only did I get to spend some quality time with my lovely friend Lisa, we also visited an Alice In Wonderland inspired Tea Room and partook of Afternoon Tea. 🙂 Alices Tea Room in the Lancashire seaside town of St Annes can be found on St Albans road, away from the front and not to far from the town centre. Once there you can sit outside in the sun or enjoy the Wonderland inside.
Everywhere you look there are characters from Lewis Carroll’s magical tale along with Top Hats and White rabbits , Teacups and ‘Eat Me’ and ‘Drink Me’ signs. There are two rooms to be seated in as the cafe has recently been extended due to it’s popularity. Lisa had reserved us a table luckily. 🙂
Lunch at the cafe includes sandwiches,paninis and jacket potatoes. However we couldn’t resist The Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea. 😉 Served on a beautiful vintage three tier cake stand, the Afternoon Tea is a feast for the eyes indeed. Accompanying the gorgeous selection of sumptuous sandwiches and divine cakes, came our tea in china teapots. And all was served on pretty mismatched crockery.
The Afternoon Tea contained mini cheese,egg mayo,tuna and ham sandwiches ( Veggie fillings are no trouble either), fruit scones with jam and clotted cream, flapjacks, chocolate cupcakes and marvelous sparkly meringues. Tea refills were plentiful and there’s lots of choice on the tea menu. If you don’t fancy doing the Afternoon Tea but need a sweet treat, Alice’s have fabulous cakes and an Ice cream counter too. 🙂
And if you want a memento to take home with you , there’s a little shop too full of Wonderland inspired goodies. In fact my super talented friend Lisa makes all the lovely Alice tags you can see hanging here. 🙂
The Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea was £17.85 for two people.
Are you a fan of Afternoon Tea?
