Could have spent ages taking pictures of all the old buildings but was getting cold so only one.

My turn to cake pick today and it’s this lot, the mini eclairs were super scrummy hazelnut, chocolate, coffee and vanilla fillings

So many cakes, so little time ! Might have to up the daily quota.😀

I also picked up a salmon quiche and a baguette, so that was lunch sorted
