Lawn Bowling and McCafe
As we headed out of town this am we stopped at a park and a beautiful old statuesque building that used to be a government center. In the park there were a lot of men dressed in white rolling balls on a large lawn. It was a lawn bowling club and taken very seriously in this area. They were in the middle of a match and we were warned not to make a sound. We took in the match and then headed to a McCafe for a "flat white" and some goodies. A McCafe is actually a real McDonalds with a twist! They have an actual espresso bar with succulent goodies AND deli sandwiches,quiches, and breads. It was hard to wrap my head around the set up, because they also had the regular stuff too! They even had soy and alternative milks for the coffees. Bruce was so excited to enter a McDonalds after 40 years, that he posed by the big M for me! He didn't eat anything, though.
