Hatton Country World and a cuppa.

After some lunch, we took a stroll along the main Hatton road to Hatton Country World. The last time we visited the place was in 2008, so we were looking to see what hand changed. The walk along the road can be a little dodgy, because there is no pavement and some cars did not want to give us a lot of room. One gentleman gave me the look, so I did exactly the same back. Feet were made before cars, so I was not about to be pushed into the hedgerow.
With it being Half-Term week, the place was very busy with families enjoying a day out and what better place to do it.
Something tells me Halloween is almost upon us.
It is Halloween Week and there are scary things and Pumpkins everywhere. They have a field full of Pumpkins, where families can go and chose their own Pumpkin and it looked popular.
We enjoyed a nice stroll around the outlets, before walking back down the road to the canal, where we decided to head for the Hatton Locks Café.
I know I am sorry yet another Autumn colour photograph. I am just in awe of the colours this year.
We had a pot of tea and a couple of Caramel Shortbreads and sat outside.
The last time we did this at the café, was almost two years ago, when Keith was recovering from his illness. I had said to him if we made it to the top, I would treat him to a cuppa. Wow those two years have flown by.
After enjoying a cuppa and watching the boats go down, we walked back to the boat, where the afternoon sun began to set.
With the clocks going back at the weekend, we will all be in darkness much earlier and Winter will be creeping ever closer.
