Last summer  we allowed extra time around the meeting we want to attend in Great Dunmow,  so we find ourselves with a day free of plans, but this changed when we unexpectedly got a morning tea invitation from a new friend we met via the group we were meeting up with.

Our host lives fairly local to where we are so mid morning finds us enjoying a cuppa and admiring her beautiful home, the oldest parts of which are several centuries old.

Kiwi Daughter and Little Mr. quickly make friends with several of the canine family pets one of whom is elderly and equally enamoured with Little Mr. because he seemingly never tires of scratching her belly.

Our host is an avid gardener so the spade knocker on the garden shed seemed very appropriate. I loved how the moss grows around the tiles on the roof and the whole house has character, even one of the exit doors is huge (probably put into place during centuries when ladies skirts were rather wider than they have been for a long long time). It’s actually the local knowledge from this new friend that sets us out on our next and unexpected adventure… tea and talk finished, directions in hand we set out for our recommended destination.
