Over Raya holidays, we booked ourselves for a short getaway in Camerons. We got there alright despite the traffic jam along the North South H'way. But we weren't alone in the hills. Others too LOVE the cool and the offerings of Camerons. It was like never-ending shopping for the hordes of tourists - at the veggie and strawberry farms .We didn't have time for the flowers. Guess the beautiful award-winning garden at The SmokeHouse Hotel more than made up.
Not only did we have our share of yummy strawberry jam, scones, we loaded our car with more strawberries, veggies a plenty and a beautiful bromeliad, all fighting for space in the car boot and amongst us in the seats.
|The old charm of a Tudor House still attracts visitors. No log fire though as the chimneys aren't put to work!|
|Just a wee sample of more strawberry products. Eat, play, love - it's raining strawberries in Camerons!!|
|Have to say this is a teaser strawberry! There's really tons of strawberries to eat up in Camerons. All the year round too. No more mounds of earth to grow in. Hydroponics is the way.|
|The Merlin that people used to know is now Cameron Highlands Resort where we had lunch.|
|If space in your car is not an issue, there's an awful lot to cart home.|
