They are a fiendly bunch of people in Temple Ewell. The Ragstones were in need of a coffee shop and Peter's eagle eyes spotted a notice outside Tmple Ewell Chuch Hall saying that coffee was being served on Wednesday morning 10.00 to 12.00. Fantastic, it was 10.30 and about to start raining.
The Ragstones were welcomed by Colin, who seemed to be in charge, and plied with coffee and home-made muffins. And the chairs were comfy leather settees. It was raining outside, though no one noticed, and the time passed effortlessly. Judith found a mother and then involved herself in a great long conversation about babies. Peter had a seconf home-made muffin! What luxury! This is the place to go: Church Hall, Temple Ewell, East Kent, Wednesday morning - these are great people!
But the time came when the Ragstones had to continue their journey to River and places East. After some tourist activities they found the Fox Inn, where Rosemary joined them for lunch. Passing by the watermill they had noticed that there is a presentation on archaeological finds by Keith Parfitt. He is a geat archaeologist and you should go. See the photos for details.
The Ragstones returned - but not without mishap. Judit had a large bee (about the size of an eagle) take a lump out of her knee - the third bee-sting in all her years. Wow - what a swollen knee she had!
Back to Ruth's for tea. In her absence Robert had overseen the construction of a new drive, so that they will have an in and an out entrance. It'll be safe to leave now!
