Afternoon Tea

Mindy says: I'll start off our post today, since Moe is distracted. Over what, you say? Oh, usually it's because he thinks he is starving and not getting enough food. He lives for food and catnip.















While our humans were abandoning  er,away from us, they visited this lovely park.                                 















This property once belonged to Canada's 10th prime minister and this building has a 'tea room' where you can get lunch and traditional English afternoon tea. The menu, however, is written in French, the official language of the province of Quebec. Yes, the property is located in the lovely Gatineau Hills. It's about a 15 minute drive from Ottawa.
While waiting for tea and lunch to arrive, they demonstrated how to raise your 'pinky finger' when you are drinking the tea from a teacup.
Aren't they being silly!! During lunch, here is the beautiful garden that can be seen from the outdoor tearoom - what a view.
Our mombean saw this lovely Monarch butterfly visiting the flowers!
Moe says: I would have a wonderful time there catching those butterflies. I knows just how to sneak up and - 'gotcha'!!
Mindy, lets make sure we get to go along next time they goes away someplace. They would have lots more fun, if we did that!!
