Biggest. Scones. Ever.

11 May


Husb and I went with friends to the seaside town of Hastings today. I hadn’t been before and it’s a great place, a mixture of curious, kitsch and cool. It was sunny and warm and we took a long walk through the old town, full of higgledy piggledy cobbled streets and ancient buildings, interesting shops and lovely cafes, loads of vintage and antique emporia.

We stopped for a cup of tea in the Green Cafe in the Old Town where we saw the Biggest Scones Ever. Seriously large. One of our friends ordered a cheese scone. It arrived, awesome in it’s vastness, with an ice-cream scoop of butter. It was delicious. And the tea was good too. Of course, I had to have a scribble, with a biro (ballpoint) pen into my small, flowery sketchbook.

    Hm, they do look delicious. Remind me of a wonderful afternoon with scones, cream and tea I had with my girlfriend (now also my wife) in a cafe in Falmouth, Cornwall many, many years ago. Oh, well – what a vacation that was. Backpacks, the Coastpath and all that, before the dawn of offspring-centered holidays ;o).

      Cornwall, how love. Did you try the Cornish pasties?

        Yes, of course. As there are no miners left I guess they are really for ramblers today. And there must be a well-wornout teatowel with a pastie-recipe somewhere here in a drawer.

    Sounds like a lovely day. Picture of scones in the background was massive!
