Tuesday, December 1

over the river and through the woods …

… to the Coe’s house we go….

A little more from the Planting Fields sojourn from yesterday … we got to the front hall I think…. past that, you go into a wide hall with a large staircase to the second level … then into the main reception room … this is the second floor landing …

Turning, you see the room itself …

The room was set up for a lute concert.  I was pleasantly surprised.

Then, the dining room … it was set up in the style of an Elizabethan banquet hall … on display were the costumes that Cate Blanchett wore in the movie Elizabeth: the Golden Age … behind that curtain, was a grand piano!  And notice the balcony in the room at the top left.

Notice the stained glass in nearly every window?   I’ll post some more tomorrow ….
