Fall colours are starting to show reds and yellows around here.

Today we took a drive over to Ormsby to

have lunch in an old school.

Tea was served in china cups and the food on china plates. Everything was homemade and delicious.

This school was built in 1921 and in use until 1964. They even had some original students' desks off in one corner along with ....

old class photos.

The owners and guests were so friendly we are going back tomorrow for  Thanksgiving supper.

This is a great destination  anytime you need an excuse to enjoy a cup of tea.
