Birthday out

Lovely day today. First part was a gentle drive north, calling in at the village of Beetham.
Never really noticed it before, but it has a Corn Mill, the Heron Theatre and the Wheatsheaf Inn amongst its highlights. Surprising amounts of stuff for such a small picturesque place.

We then moved on to Lower Sizergh Barn. It's a great place, full of lots of lovely local / organic / fair trade food, crafts, etc. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Fantastic place to go for some goodies round Christmas time, but a treat at any time. Had lunch in the cafe, which has windows overlooking the milking shed. Terrific quiche (you see, real men do eat it after all)

Went home to open some card and prezzies, and eat lemon cake from Sizergh. Evening grub in the Keys at Slyne with a pint of Golden Pippin from the Copper Dragon Brewery.
