I didn't take many photos of our time together, just this one before Gregg's bike ride. All the flowers I am sharing came from a friend's garden when we dropped her back home a couple of days later. She has a magic touch.
The weekend was over all too soon but the one friend mentioned above stayed a day longer, the friend who has a magic touch in her garden. Before we dropped her off at her home, she treated us to lunch at a place in Winchester called The Chocolate Cafe. (I like to mention that I am not getting anything for this free advertising, but if I find a place we truly enjoy, I like to mention them on my blog. We will be going back.)
When we walked in I looked around and knew we had come to a neat place. I asked the manager if I could take photos, and she very kindly gave me the okay.
We ordered our sandwiches and I forgot to take photos of those, but we all enjoyed them. I had a pastrami on rye and it was the best sandwich I had had in a very long time. If I don't take a photo I can't remember what anyone else had, but they all agreed their choices were excellent, which included a small side dish of orzo pasta salad which was my choice.
As you can see from the photo below there is a definite connection to furry friends. The tip jar contents go to their local rescue shelter.
There is even an adoption wall.
Hopefully you can enlarge all the photos and have a better look. In the sign below it says the walls are covered with photos of rescue animals from a no-kill shelter that they support. This cafe definitely has a big heart.
Attached to the cafe is a place that sells all kinds of chocolates, and I will share photos from there in another post, but here is a 'taste' of what to expect.
