Summertime Memories


I was looking for a photo, though now I can’t remember what for, and came across this delectable plate of fish and chips.  With snow in the Ottawa forecast, summer seems so far away.

It was the only fish and chips I had in a week in the United Kingdom in the summer of 2014. Curry shops abound. Demographics changes mean fish restaurants are not as common as they once were.

We were walking the beach along England’s North Sea coast when we came across this beachside establishment in Dunwich. It seemed to make sense to try the fish and chips given our proximity to the ocean. It was delicious.

Since I wanted to share the photo I thought it only right to tell you what the name of the restaurant was. I didn’t see a sign in my picture, but how difficult can it be?

It wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. Maybe that is because I didn’t believe my search results. “Flora Tearooms” gives me images of something quaintly Victorian, not a rustic beachside cafe.  Tough to argue with the pictures though – definitely the same building.

As I recall, the food was great and the atmosphere even greater. Dunwich is a place with so much history. I’m hoping to get back there someday.
