Wards Hotel in Folkestone, England was the place that Himself and I selected to be our accommodation when we needed to be in the city for the funeral of a friend.

The friends widow was also located close by, in a house that the couple had moved to in a down-sizing exercise once it became clear that the husbands cancer was inoperable and his life expectancy was short.

We also found out that  due to the large number of attendees at the funeral, the wake would also take place in the Wards Hotel.

The hotel staff start preparing things soon after the breakfast guests have finished having breakfast. Himself and I chose to have hot typically “English” breakfast, Himself having the plate with the mushroom,  I have the one without since I am allergic to them.

After breakfast we are of course busy with funeral related activities for the day:  the church service, then the graveside one, the wake, and later in the evening, a visit to see our friend’s widow because we need to leave early the following morning to head back to the Netherlands.  The breakfast is nice, we especially enjoy it because it is so different to a typical Dutch bread based one and a treat. It’s not the sort of thing that would be healthy to have on a daily basis but as a special indulgence… well, a little bacon and egg is a good way to gear up for a difficult day.
