Lingering Look at Windows : Devonshire tea with a view

The days are dwindling, there are only a few left before we head back south and home. Where has the time gone? I have enjoyed just being absorbed in this “good life”.

Before we leave there are a couple of places I want to revisit and one of those is Lake Barrine. It is only a short drive and the Tearoom has a reputation for its Devonshire teas with fresh-baked scones. So this week I will take you to visit this iconic wet tropics area. Maybe I will see a tree kangaroo.

It's a warm day and the windows are open all round to catch the slightest breeze

The scones were delicious but I thought a bit over priced at $15 for one and a half scone each and a cup of coffee. I think you pay extra for the view!

Dawn from ” The day after” has a challenge to find windows and post them each week. I love these Word Press challenges they open your eyes to the world around you. I also enjoy looking through all the other interesting and varied windows from around the world. Go to Dawns link, you may have some windows you can show us.

  1. I’ve never really had scones but $15.00 seems pricey to me too. However the tea rooms here are like that as well; pricey, that is. I like the color scheme, it seems quite cheery and the young man, lets not be too hard on him, he was probably talking to a girl. 😉
