Afternoon Tea At Greenfield Village
Greenfield Village, houses many buildings and historic objects from the 18th and 19th centuries. One of these buildings is Cotswold Cottage, brought over from England’s Cotswold region and painstakingly reconstructed brick by brick. Not just the main house but a little barn as well, a beautiful English garden and stone wall finish out the scene. In the summertime they serve up a glorious afternoon tea. I have been trying to go for years, it seems though whenever I made it there on a day they were suppose to be open, some event or weather situation prevented me from enjoying it. Well Finally I managed to experience the afternoon tea. Accompanied by my cousin Stephanie and her son Percy. We had a delightful afternoon of tea and snacks and then wandered around the village. Percy was even lucky enough to be able to send a postcard from one of the oldest working post offices in the United States.
In case your wondering if this is a good fit for kids, Percy very much enjoyed his tea, so long as he could spread the cream on everything and put it in his tea. Though honestly the cream was delicious and I spread it on everything too. He kept asking why the birds and chipmunks were running around all the tables. LOL hey they gotta eat too. Keeps down on the cleanup.
