Quiet Corner

 Greeted by this sign along the parking lot -
a precursor somehow to the serenity of the wild, welcoming 
 Its tearooms offer sandwiches, soups, quiches and desserts
all delicious and freshly made.
We chose to eat in the smaller, older of the two rooms
where we looked out to the trails and watched birds come and go at the feeders. 
 After lunch, a stroll along the trails..
 Accompanied by our guide, Duke.
 A few sights along the trail...

and then we reluctantly returned to our car for the ride home.
Quiche it was for me followed by strawberry/rhubarb pie.
For the Main Gardener, chicken salad on wheat, a hearty vegetable soup with rivels
and Snicker cake.

    1. ...and I didn't even mention the owners whose story, vision, hard work and daily presence exceed even the natural beauty and good food!

  2. What a beautiful place to visit!

  3. Gorgeous surroundings, great food and a friendly tour guide; who could ask for anything more? Was that the famous Duke of Earl?

  4. We are so fortunate to be able to dine in such beautiful surroundings! Thank you for the tour!
