So it’s a fine rain outside, and the giant umbrellas provide ample shelter. We figure, let’s have breakfast outside – with the rain falling around us. That’s when this cheeky guest shows up. First, he cautiously danced around us – flirting but with good escapes ready. Then he moved closer. Eventually, he had some of our toast and sat with us. I’m assuming this is a Red Robin, or a red chested robin, or some such creature. When going for a breakfast at a stately country manor, surprises from mother nature herself on top of everything else – well, it just lets you know you’re in the right place.
