Mudchute

Over the weekend we went to Mudchute Kitchen and Farm. Andrew read that the cafe was a good place to eat with kids, and we thought the farm would be fun for Lois too. It was quite a haul from our place, but it was worth it. Mudchute is London's largest city farm, with 32 acres in the Isle of Dogs, just south of the Docklands. It's a bit o' countryside right in the city. Here's a peek.
A proper English breakfast.  It looks disgusting but tasted amazing. The cafe was very cozy and homey, with flowers on the tables, mismatched furniture, piles of newspapers at communal tables, and lamps scattered around.
Dessert after breakfast? Sure. We had blood orange cake, yum.
Homemade farm jam.
The specials on Valentine's.  Andrew had the second one, sausages with pumpkin mash and winter slaw.  Wow, it was sooooo good.
After we ate, we walked around the farm, got really muddy doing so, and saw lots of animals along the way.
It was interesting to see the contrast of the city behind the farm.
Cartoon pigs are WAY cuter than the real deal. Yes, I've seen pigs in person in my life, but it's been a long time.  This was one unattractive pig.
See, cartoon piglet is cute!  Oink, oink.  That's all folks!

Now what looks so disgusting about that breakfast other than the beans?
I am in awe of that picture with the horse peeking out of his stall. Absolutely beautiful with a somewhat ghostly coloring to the photo.

Have been following you for a little while now and want to say thank you for your beautiful photos and your wonderful thoughts. I am in a huge transition in my life right now and it is just one day at a time and I enjoy all the inspiration that others have to share. I use my blog as somewhat of a gratitude journal and as my eye on the prize so to speak and I love women who inspire which in turn empowers others. Many do not realize the impact that they have and I just wanted to share your little impact on me. Thank You and keep sharing those beautiful pics.
Always, Shelly
