What better way to say goodbye to Britain than afternoon tea in an English country garden? There seems to be a certain amount of confusion outside England about afternoon tea. I'm often asked if I have it every day or if the Queen has it. The truth is just one look at this delicacy will tell you it is too much to eat every day.
I think I can do it.
So as I lie here post scones, jam, cream, sarnies, macaroons, cakes and mousse I say goodbye England. Thanks for the summer weather in April, the fish and chips, the beaches and the reminder of my former life. Tomorrow back to Montreal.
More on English fish and chips.

I'm a filmmaker, former BBC journalist, cottage dweller, gardener and cat lover. I make documentaries, profile videos of individuals and companies as well as trailers for productions and festivals.
