A day of adventures

I'm loving it at the Hall.  Any day that starts with almost anything you want for breakfast, cooked for you and no washing up is going to bring a smile to my face.  We then decided to walk off some of the excesses and got a map from reception and went on a treasure hunt.  It was great as we  got to see things we might not have noticed or seen if we'd have just gone for a wander.

The Woods

How cute are these cottages on the estate?

The estate church, very charming.
The Hall from the grounds.

For dinner we were lucky enough to eat in the Blue Room.  It's beautiful and so was the food. 

I started with pork belly with scallops.

Then I had the fillet steak - delicious.

Rather than dessert I went for the cheese board and it was a great choice, especially teamed with a glass of port!

You'd think that would be enough for one day but no the adventure continued.  Gwyneth and I headed to the entertainment and tonight it was a great group called the Soundations.  So good we got up and danced and even made some new friends on the dance floor.  No names just dancing and laughing!  It must have been a good night as I managed a Charleston and even some contemporary dance - I blame the port and watching Strictly Come Dancing before going to dinner!

Last but not least for today is one of the cards that I eventually got finished.  I'm popping this into the challenge at:
Allsorts - spots and stripes
Totally Gorjuss - sparkle

Supplies used, all PTI:
Stamps - enjoy the ride
Ink - true black
Patterned paper - going green

Well that's enough adventures for one day.
