Visiting Berry (continued)

This is “Paulchen”, our fourteen year old car. In 2001, when Peter’s sister Ilse stayed with us for three months and “Paulchen” was still fairly new, Ilse lovingly called the car “Paulchen” . Whenever we tried to make a sly remark about the car, she would not tolerate it. She always urged us not to say anything bad about “Paulchen”. Apart from a few little dents, “Paulchen” is still okay, good for a drive in our surrounds.

I think we reached Berry on Saturday at around 11am. We were lucky to find a parking spot straight away right in front of the French Bakery Restaurant.

Another view of our parking spot. To the right we noticed a beautiful cottage

We thought this cottage looks lovely.

The restaurant was originally a barn. It was cuddly warm with a heater switched on.

Soon our coffee was served in big cups.  The pram in the background was a joy to watch it kept bouncing up and down the way a cradle would.

And yes we had Eggs Florentine and Eggs Benedict on sourdough bread with hollandaise sauce.

The couple with the baby left the restaurant about the same time we did.

I took a picture of Peter before I sat in the car.

There must have been a little bit of drizzle while we had been sitting in the restaurant.

After our beautiful meal we felt energised to go for a walk through town. The restaurant had been filling up while we were in there. We noticed people had to queue up for seats and parking spots in the street might soon be getting scarce. I urged Peter to drive to the other end of town where we could probably find a parking spot not too far away from the street where all the shops are. We actually were able to park the car somewhere else without any problem. Our walk along the shops could begin!

    Quite an array of interesting shops to browse through.
    I can see why it is a tourist town, a lot of enterprising retailers.
    I do like that quaint turn of the century old home, very Victorian.
    Regards

      Thank you Ian for taking the time to browse through all these posts about Berry. I like these small places with a bit of history.
      Cheers
