T sTands for This, ThaT and The oTher

Hi Everybody!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend and are feeling it and well to start the new week - have a good one!

This evening we will be starting Elizabeth's T sTands for Tuesday  link parTy, where we share news, beverages and more. Here a hearty welcome to all of the lovely ladies of the T Gang who visit here.

At the weekend I showed some pics of Zons, a little medieval town near here, which I visited 2 years ago along with Sabine of Artbee Art. As you know, sightseeing makes you hungry and thirsty, and we visited a wonderful garden-cafe. We passed by lots of signs for other restaurants before we found the perfect spot:




This is where we sat down and refreshed ourselves:








We had a small portion of waffles with strawberries and ice.....








Then we were able to do more sightseeing after fortifying ourselves:



The history of the old well:







Fall down - get up - straighten your crown - carry on!












I will show the rest of the photos in my next post!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  7. Good morning Valerie: Thanks for the continuation of the tour around this beautiful little town with Sabine in her beautiful blue dress. She looks stunning. The charm of this place is readily apparent to all, and they reward your perambulations with waffles and ice cream....oh and strawberries too. And that's a small order? Sabine looks very happy with her coffee, and I imagine you downed a couple of those too. I hope that washrooms were readily available! Maybe in the post COVID era you will be able to make a repeat visit. I am not a big fan of ZOOM meetings and today I have three of them. Not something I am especially looking forward to. Oh how pleasant it will be to get together again with real people! One day! Take good care. Until tomorrow, hugs and kisses. David

    1. Hi David, glad you liked your tour of Zons, it really is a little gem, I never tire of visiting there. Sabine is a lovely friend, she drove us there! Yes, that was the small waffle plate, I have no idea how large the large one would have been....My computer breaks down if I try to zoom, it's just too old and wobbly, a bit like me! Hope you get your meetings done well! Yes, it will be wonderful to meet up with people again. That's one good things about the clinic, we have fun together! BIG hugs to you and Miriam!

  13. Charming cafe and since snow is coming tomorrow, I'm dreaming of warm sunshine, strawberries, ice cream, and waffles. The geraniums in the window boxes look so pretty. I should see if they can grow in shade. I loved the pick yourself up and straighten your crown sign, and the blue kitty would look so good in my Zensical garden. I hope you are doing better and will be home soon. Take care.

  16. I just finished my post right before 4 pm, then saw you asked me to link you, so I did. Wow, the waffle and strawberry ice cream looks delicious, and your photos showing the places you passed in order to get to this lovely spot were beautiful. I was also taken by the AM Kindergarten and the crown. Thanks for sharing your lovely trip, food, and drinks with us for T this Tuesday, dear. I hope all is well.

  18. A wonderful way to spend time with your friend! The sights, architecture, shops and cafe look so stunning, it looked like you walked quite a few steps that day 😀. That small portion of waffles with strawberries must have been very welcome, it looks so good but if that's small I hate to think what a big portion looks like ...lol 😉. Lovely post, wishing you a happy T Tuesday! Hugs, Jo x

  21. Oh it looks like it was great day out, and it certainly was a great post to read from the comfort of my couch. Those strawberries, ice cream and waffles are teasing my sweet tooth. That's a lot of strawberries, and they certainly look delicious. Especially now the winter practically fruitless time. Oranges and apples are great, but oh for some really fresh strawberries. Hope all is well and have a great T day my friend. Hugs-Erika

  24. What a wonderful post! I enjoyed it so much! If that was two years ago, how did I miss this one? I don't remember seeing these pictures (I would have remembered).
    The story about the well and the drinking water is interesting. I wonder what they did after the floods, when the water was contaminated. According to the sign, they didn't get a proper drink water system until 1935. I can't believe they drank contaminated water for 35 years.
    I love the 'straighten-your-crown, carry on' sign. Brilliant. That is what we have to do.
    The waffle looks delicious. A small portion you say? Wow! That would feed an orphanage!
    Thank you for taking me through this beautiful village.
    Happy T-Day,
    Lisca

    1. Thanks Lisca. It could be that I didn't show the pics on a Tuesday. I have more photos on today's blog. It must have been very hard for the people with no clean drinking water, I suppose they had to boil it all. The good old days weren't always good! The portions at that cafe were huge, a real family portion! Have a happy T Day, hugs!
