Nom Nom Nom in The Peg: Captain Kennedy Tea House

In the summers, it is a beautiful drive to go down River Road a few miles north of Winnipeg. The road meanders beside the Red River, past the big acreage homes of the wealthy, past one of the oldest Anglican churches in Manitoba (St. Andrew's on the Red), until finally it comes to Captain Kennedy Tea House. This is a restored heritage home that functions as part museum, part tea house. It has beautiful rock gardens which you can enjoy while waiting for your name to come up on the waiting list for tea. The food is homemade and yummy, served by young women in period dress.

This photo does not do any justice at all to the Tea House and rock gardens, but it's the only one I could find on the internet. I've spent so many pleasant afternoons there with family and friends over the years -- very special memories of time past and people now often departed.
