It Takes a Village...and Pudding!

We celebrated Michaelmas by taking it easy today. Sleeping late was followed by a leisurely breakfast and a bit of puttering around the apartment. No buses to catch or trains to chase after today!

Along about 1:00 pm we decided to walk over to the Mount, as the causeway was completely uncovered.

 This week is Pudding Week at the Mount, and I've had my eye on some sticky toffee pudding since we got here!  Anne had the apple crumble with clotted cream (left) and she pronounced it delicious! My sticky toffee pud (right) was delightful!

We took the village tour which was extremely interesting. It was, happily, a short tour as the wind was blowing about 30 mph out of the northeast and it was getting a bit chilly. It was interesting to hear how the islanders live and work and about so much of their history. I was especially intrigued by the state barges that were over 150 years old and are still in use!  Time now to make some supper and relax some more! Tomorrow we go to visit the villages of Gerrans and Portscatho.

Stay tuned...
