Fabulous fingerplates

Is that prawn winking at me?

Apparently many of us took to the great outdoors yesterday, making the most of the sunniest Sunday so far in 2012. We joined you all - taking a long walk, complete with young boy on speedy scooter (I apologise again to those fellow walkers who felt a rush of air as he zoomed past and feared for their safety - he is actually quite good at stopping just in time!).

Our journey ended with lunch at one of our favourite places - The Winking Prawn at North Sands, near Salcombe. A wooden building just behind the beach that serves the most delicious food in relaxed and comfortable surroundings - it doesn't get a lot better than that. We sat outside and watched families playing on the beach, whilst our children played in the Prawn's own sandpit. Plus I challenge any of you to pay a visit and not be tempted with the dressing up box! The green silky hat is my particular favourite!
Also a big thank you to Lucy at the Winking Prawn who kindly agreed to fit my finger plates to their doors. I have to say the funky fuchsia matches their decor perfectly - the colour of the finger plates coincides with the staff aprons fabulously! And obviously the winking prawn himself is a rather fetching shade of pink!

So I recommend paying a visit to sample the delicious food and drink - and cast your eyes towards the double doors as you go in. Let me know what you think!

Kitchen update:  The island is in place, and we're taking the granite worktop to be cut to size tomorrow. Aga is still not in use yet - still managing with an oven that would look more in place in the Science Museum, but it's only a matter of time!
