MONT ST JEAN FARM WATERLOO


Today I don't need to dig in the past for once I have "fresh" photos because for the first time this year we could sit outside and have a drink ! On the way back from Mr. G's clinic, I had seen a sign at the entrance "Beer garden open" ! 

The farm is a beautiful place nicely restored for the bi-century battle in 2015.  At the end of the Battle of Waterloo in 1815,  the  inner yard of the Mont-Saint-Jean Farm was used as military hospital by the Duke of Wellington for the wounded soldiers.

On the first sunny Day Myriam and I went there to see how it looks now and of course enjoy our first drink outside our prisons. 


old farm and brewery ustensils were stocked here




The view on the fields, last time I had been here, there were also cows.

Myriam looks at the peaceful fields 

The place is so nice that you could sit here for hours. 


 

When we went out we had to go through the restaurant and discovered the machines for making beer

There is even a place to dance !



And the children are not forgotten

Isn't this just the most loveliest thing to find you next to me in Our World Tuesday at back at Waterloo where we met all those years ago. So happy you found an open beer garden! Have a good week

Glad you got to enjoy going somewhere again. I must admit: it does feel so good to act as a normal human being. Long may it continue!

I like your red outfit. It looks very nice and vibrant and suits you well. It also looks like it is still pretty cold in Waterloo.

It looks a lovely peaceful place. I'm glad you are allowed to sit and drink there. You look lovely and bright in red. Keep well. Melbourne is having trouble getting the fourth outbreak under control. The 7 day lockdown has gone to 14 days. It is the Indian variant and extremely contagious. Vaccinations are starting to ramp up at last.
