Just before, we'd found a tea shop (Betjeman and Barton), which I was unable to resist. Apparently the first flush :arjeelings are coming in - quite tempting but at 30 euros per 100 grams I restrained myself. I came out with a nice sized bag of Kenya Milima and a sample of Castleton Estate 2nd flush Darjeeling, which the guy swore was the best stuff in the store. I'm more than willing to put it to the test!
Now we're going to finish our walk, looking for the place where Marcel's grandmother (in the book) had her stroke, and then, I suspect, we'll be quite hungry and more than ready for dinner. Somehow I suspect we'll be having cider with our meal tonight. Wish us luck with the weather - it rained cats and dogs earlier today!
