Rochester at LAST!

Well, I can’t even comment on how overdue this is. It’s just way past the embarrassing stage at this point! Here, at last, are photos of what we did on our Saturday in England in 2007! At left is what remains of the original Roman wall in the earliest part of Rochester. It’s really amazing […]

Long time, no post!

I’ve managed to let months slip by without posting the final days of our 2007 trip. I promise to bug Lindsay for the Saturday pictures so I can finish up! It is fun to look back and remember the trip highlights. My dear husband will be stopping through London on his way back from Africa […]

Friday in London!

Well, we’ve now been back home for a week, and I think I’m mostly recovered from jet lag! Coming back is always much harder on me than going over. But now Lindsay has had time to sort through her pictures and share them, so I’m ready to post again! We got up early Friday, determined […]

Day Two (written on Day Four!)

We have lived in a whirlwind of activity since Wednesday. We’ve walked until we didn’t think our feet could hold up any more. We’ve hopped wrong buses and ended up in parts of town we didn’t plan to see (but enjoyed the additional sightseeing anyway!). We’ve taken more pictures than we can count. It is […]

Two days in England!

Well, we made it. Our flight over was delayed two hours, which put us at Heathrow past the time to catch our train up to the Cotswolds. We managed to breeze through Customs (no line) and haul everything to the train station to catch the Express to Paddington. Once there, we found that the next […]

To England again!

My amazing husband has had to travel quite a bit this year, both internationally and around the States. I’ve not minded and have always been delighted to see his photographs and hear stories from places as diverse as Sudan and Scotland! But Matt felt that he needed to repay me by sending me back over […]

Which Austen heroine are you?

A friend told me I needed to update my blog, but since this one revolves around England and my travel there last year, it’s one that sometimes has to languish for lack of good things to post! But I have a fun one today. I get the Jane Austen Centre e-newsletter, and today they had […]

Pictures of the Front Garden in Spring!

Well, I finally got the camera and have taken a few shots of my front garden. I’m so excited that the things I planted last year actually didn’t die! I was afraid the roses wouldn’t fare well with the cold snap we had in early April, but they came through it unscathed and are blooming […]

New pictures coming soon!

My front garden has surprised me this spring with an abundance of annuals that didn’t die over the winter! My attempt at an English cottage garden has really encouraged me to continue planting. I didn’t think I’d inherited my mother’s green thumb, but my roses are so healthy and hearty (even after a late freeze) […]

Chipping-Campden

Finally! I’ve got the last of the pictures in the gallery. Hope you enjoy seeing our last day in wonderful England! Click below to access the album: Chipping-Campden And I can’t resist sharing a photo to demonstrate how our trip to England has already influenced some changes here at home. They are simple but have […]
