It was after the Hobbiton Tour. Before boarding back onto the bus we had some time to relax in the Green Dragon and have a complimentary drink. We could also order food if we wanted. I decided not to have any food as I was set to take the plunge in a few hours, but the girl beside me had a steak and ale pie that looked delicious.
My drink of choice the Frogmorton Ginger Beer. I absolutely loved the large mug that it came in. The only soda type drink I like is Ginger Ale, and while ginger beer is a bit different, I still love the gingery taste!
I sat with a group of girls at a round table and we talked about where we were from and where we would be going. The table was diverse, with a girl from Hawaii Island, two girls from England, a girl from Paris and myself, a Canadian.
While they ordered pastries I noticed a cat lurking around, trying to steal food from the groups.
This cat was apparently thrown out of a moving vehicle onto the grounds at Hobbiton. Now the cat lives at the Green Dragon, getting love from all of the visitors everyday and never having to go hungry.
As terrible as being thrown out of a moving vehicle in the middle of nowhere is, if it has to happen, it might as well be in Middle Earth, more specifically Hobbiton!
After our drink we had to head out, but if I had my way I would have spent all day curled up before the fire place drinking ginger beer and playing with the cat!
Have you ever been to Hobbiton?
Do you ever plan to go?
