Lunch in Prince Edward County

After varying temperatures in May, the first weekend in June turned out to be a lovely 20 degrees with sunny, clear skies
 and a warm gentle breeze.
The prior week, a welcome rain brought relief to the parched ground and filled giant mushrooms with tiny drinking fountains.
It was time for another road trip to the 'county'!
My favourite part of the trip is taking the ferry across Adolphus Reach
First stop: Bloomfield, with its quaint shops and charming locally owned restaurants
The last time we were at Agrarian for lunch, there were so many choices we wanted to try, that we knew we had to go back to sample something different
I started with a chilly glass of '8 Man English Pale Ale' from one of our local breweries: 
...which helped wash down a crispy local perch sandwich

Our next stop was a visit to Domaine Darius to pick up a few bottles of the delicious Port that I had tasted on my last visit.
The gardens had been planted and were starting to burst with colour
I love their use of different mediums to show off their green thumbs!
We ended this glorious weekend with a trip
 up to Chaffey's Locks to visit
The Opinicon Resort, currently being restored to its former glory...... enjoy some home make ice cream

While strolling the lock, I noticed a most fascinating tree.....rings of its history were exposed and weathered making it a lovely tableau!
Ah, Welcome June......
