We then drove to Ellesmere which has a big lake, to have our lunch. We sat at a picnic table and had all kinds of bits, it was great. We fed some lettuce to the ducks and had a little walk. Then we drove to Whittington Castle, which isn't huge but which was quite nice to look at, and we had afternoon tea there.
Again we got back to the cottage around 4pm and I got into my pyjamas for a bit before we went out to Meze Greek restaurant in Ellesmere. It's highly rated and we liked it, although service was quite slow. I had spanokopita and then halloumi kebabs which were really good. We didn't have dessert but went back and watched another film before bed.
I wish we had had longer in Shropshire but as it was we had to leave the next day. It was nice for all three of us to get away, though. Sam and I drove home in yet more sunshine, and although I was absolutely exhausted when I got home I had had a lovely time.

I like them
Decaf coffee and Victoria sponge with raspberry jam - both so good!
Halloumi souvlaki with pitta, salad, and chips!
