My dog strained on the lead as I strolled up the path. Spying an organic and colourful veggie patch, I turned and followed a sandy path. A cottage lay ahead, transformed into a family friendly, farm themed and fresh feeling restaurant.
A sand pit sat entangled in short and stubby fruit trees. The sun smiled against the bright blue sky. Lawns sprawled across acres, hugging beautifully ripe and plump vines. Fire crackled in a conserved open bowl, red and peach and lemon.
Warm soup lid down my throat, pumpkin strangling my taste buds. Herbs evened up the thick orange liquid. I headed for the beef and swallowed it down.
Inside the cottage, people bustled about. I examined what could have been a living room. Scrumptious looking cakes sat in a frosted glass prison, before being served on crystal plated with shiny forks.
