Morning Coffee – Hawkshead
Click image for larger version.
While visiting Hawkshead I came across this wonderful café – the Minstrels Gallery tea rooms. It's just the place to stop off for lunch or a coffee, where you can sit outside under a shady parasol surrounded by the tempting aroma of good coffee and delicious cooked food. It's tucked into a quiet corner away from the noise of traffic (not there is much of that anyway). Before settling down for a welcome cup of coffee and a scrumptious toasted tea cake spread generously with butter, I made this sketch to capture the happy, relaxed atmosphere of the scene. I can't wait to go back!
