Lunch at Char Dukaan

On Saturday we decided to walk from Oakville to Char Dukaan for lunch. The path is relatively level, going across the top of our ridge from east to west. At intervals along the road there are rest shelters, called hawa ghars (wind houses). This one has been rebuilt with very nice stone work, a hallmark of Sanjay Narang's building style.

We passed Kellogg Church on the right. On the left is Ellengowan, followed by an old house with
these lovely wisteria flowers growing up the side. I don't know its name; its face onto the road is pretty stark.

Once at Char Dukaan, we had our bun omelets at Tip Top. Anil's is the other chai shop, but it was very busy.

On the way home, we stopped in to see the renovated Saint Paul's Church. The windows are beautiful and it was decorated with palms for Palm Sunday, the next day.
