les brumes matinales I

Master Park

Another picture of Master Park, this time in the mist.

This evening about 10 of us met up in Ashby at the Bull’s Head and then headed out to the George and Dragon in Thringstone for a Phillipines buffet meal. After the meal we retired to The Royal in Ashby for a nightcap. The owner’s wife is from the Phillipines and cooked the honours, I assume.  I was fortunate because Martin fetched me at the Bothy and dropped me back at the end of the meeting.  We didn’t spot any large black cats (various sightings reported near Thringstone, North West Leics).

According to the self-named Official Guide,

The Royal Hotel (built as The Hastings Hotel in 1826-7) the old Station building, Ivanhoe Terrace and Rawdon Terrace are all reminders of the days when Ashby was a Spa Town and host to grand concerts and dances in the now demolished Ivanhoe Baths.

It also says that the

Bull’s Head (now also named The Fayre and Firkin) is said to be one of the oldest houses in Ashby, and dates from the 14th century.

All in all it was a good evening, but it is late and time to hit the sack.  Thanks to my Lumie bodyclock from Outside In I will go to sleep quickly and wake up easily tomorrow morning.  I am really chuffed with this product. It’s working unbelievably well and giving me a fantastic little boost in the mornings.  I recommended it to Martin and he has ordered one over the Internet.  It will be interesting to see if he finds it a good product too.  Thanks to flank for originally recommending Outside In to me.
