It was my turn to organize the Red Hats outing for this month.Chose the Donn Zver Pottery with the Cafe Troy beside..
My daughters and I had visited some years ago and it was a delightful spot....
Of our 21 members 16 were able to attend.
Arriving at pottery.
Greeted by the owner.
Here he is demonstrating throwing a vase.
From the lump ,
He was quite the raconteur with many stories about becoming a potter .... as well as so informative on the making of pottery.
Flagons waiting to be fired.
In the restaurant many wonderful windows looking out onto pretty gardens.
The pottery is used to set the tables in the dining room....
Lunch was very good and the desserts to die;everyone loved their lunch; for myself I enjoyed leek potato soup, red pepper and feta quiche and dessert a maple creme brulee.....
Did I buy anything? Of course , I have been wanting a garlic keeper for sometime and this one is happily at home on my kitchen counter.
In the afternoon one of our group went to the well known quilt shop in St George, one group toured the shops along the streets in Paris and my group browsed antique shops in St George and then a brief visit to Mary Maxim in Paris...
When planning an outing for a group find it is a bit stressful one wants everyone to enjoy it.
It was a fun successful excursion.
