The clouds turned grey just as we'd hopped in the car after our wander in the woods with Mr Whiskey. Gentle drizzle nourished every plant in the village after weeks of sun and heat and tapped an ever so friendly melody on the car windows as we made our way to lunch. Just as the drizzle turned to rain, and the wind picked up evakosmasflores and I popped in for lunch and tea at my favorite wonky pub in the neighborhood thecompasses The dark and moody interior made us yearn for hearty food, and we both decided on pork belly on a bed of mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach with black pudding. Hearty, very English, and perfect for a day when it rains. It's such a treat that even if we live worlds apart and only know each other through social media, meeting someone off the grid is like meeting and old friend for the first time. I sent her off on the train with a warm embrace as she headed for road trip adventures in Scotland. I may have a love/hate relationship with social media, but it sure has a wonderful way of connecting likeminded souls... myenglishcountryside inn
