Letterbox - Julie's Virtual Advent Calendar Day 1

I almost squealed with delight when we passed this cafe yesterday in Ponteland in the Cheviot Hills I finally know where the Cheviots are now - just in case I ever go on to The Chase!).

Not only was there a big red letter box outside it, but look at the name of the cafe.  We were en route to our last gig in Denholm last night so we only had time to stop for a take away coffee, which was excellent.  But it was as pretty and inviting inside as it was outside.




This is Day 1 of Julie's Advent Scavenger Hunt - a post a day (more or less) from now until the 24th.
You can join in here for the details of the prompts and the list of who else is playing.

  4. Wow, that was a wonderful find. It sometimes happens that way & I take my lists everywhere with me in my camera case. I am joining it too, but have a busy month & will do it a little randomly & finding photos in the opposite season & a continent far away has also made it tricky. Take care.

    1. It'll be interesting to see what you come up with Susan - I'm sure Christmas feels very differently in the sun

    1. Ooooh I didn't know about Chillingham (my predictive text has just written that as chilling ham!)- maybe some place to watch out for on a future trip - I love that part of the country.
