Lake Barrine

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 was not very busy

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

Windows make the most of the view

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!

We go for a short walk along the track around the Lake and find these huge Kauri trees

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.
