Lunch down on the farm.

Today I was going to a ‘Farmers Lunch’ at Mostbauer where we were looking forward to some home produced food. There were six of us in the group including Stephen our guide.

We climbed steeply out of St Wolfgang on a country road before walking across meadows towards the farm.

b 611

Along the way we passed a couple of shrines.

After about an hours walking we descended to the farm. We had worked up an appetite.

b 615

Our meal consisted of six different types of sausage, all produced on the farm. They were cooked with herbs in a huge cauldron. When they rose to the surface they were done.

b 618

The sausages were served to us in a large dish from where we cut off portions to our taste.

There was also a choice of home baked bread, pickles and mustard.

b 619

To accompany the meal there was a choice of home brewed beer or cider.

It was all delicious.

One of our group used to be a butcher and remembered that Mondays was always sausage making day. He knew a thing or two about sausages and declared that these were top bangers.

All to soon it was time to leave for a slow walk back.

It had been a great day, good company and excellent food.

My aim is to create a photo diary of my walks and my travels. I have two main hobbies, walking and photography and these complement each other. I am a senior citizen, what used to be called an old age pensioner, but I don't feel old. Since retirement I have had more time to pursue my hobbies and the opportunity to travel more. My philosophy now is - Do what you can, while you can. My other interests are fine wines and keeping fit. These may not complement each other but keep me happy.
